What We Do
The Savage Wheat Project is a multifaceted business that is striving towards Earth existence by doing its part in increasing the biodiversity (aka health) of our planet. The way we are currently doing this is:
- Increasing the supply of ancient seeds that are almost extinct. We are using only organic farming practices, including no-till practices that keep the earth intact.
- Providing baked goods and breakfast items that are comprised of sustainable ingredients:
- whole organic ancient grains versus conventional wheat
- natural sugars; honey (tested pesticide free) and maple; versus processed white sugar
- real fats versus refined oils
- Providing a rotating monthly menu, highlighting different grains.
- Using packaging that is 100% biodegradable. The bags that look like plastic are made of sustainably harvested tree cellulose.
- Supporting our local farms and beekeepers by sourcing their products to make our specialty products.
- Sourcing wholesale from other companies that uphold similar ethics.
I believe it is important for healthy food to be affordable. My menu reflects that, as the prices are established at about $3/ serving or less.
My current outlets include teaming up with the following fellow earth stewards:
Full menu is available:
a) through delivery (limited radius),
b) pick up at Rose Forestry, and
c) pick-up at Root Down farm (summer CSA members only)
Limited items are available at:
a) Always Something Farm’s sale day market and
b) Thorpe’s Organic Family Farm store.
The “Bakery Share” delivery service I created allows members pick their weekly baskets for each Saturday. Baskets include a bread, dessert, breakfast, and snack option. All items available are refined oil free, conventional wheat free, and sugarless (containing no white sugar). The grains are sourced 100% organically, and the other ingredients are sourced organically whenever possible.
Some items, like honey are not available in certified organic-this is because there is no way to control where the bees fly and eat from. Luckily, we source from local beekeepers that have tested pesticide free honey.
