We were introduced to Maine Grains at last years Kneading Conference in Skowhegan, Maine and were impressed with the flour being produced, as well as the tasty rolled oats! The heart of Maine Grains is the Somerset Grist Mill also in Skowhegan. The goal of Maine Grains is to create a sustainable local grain economy, and they are doing an amazing job.

 

The mill sources grains solely from Maine farmers, then mills them into different flours and a variety of different oat products including cracked, quick cooking and more traditional rolled oats. I figured using the oats in a simple naturally leavened French style Pain au Levain would make for a nice, hearty loaf, with lots of whole grain. Their sifted wheat flour is also used generously.

 

Maine Grains Oatmeal bread will be available for the month of September on Thursday afternoons.
