Harvesting Native Arizona Wheat with Hayden Flour Mills

1 of 41


Back in January, Hayden Flour Mills planted two acres of heritage wheat in plots at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix. Saturday morning, it was ready to harvest.

When you're shopping at the farmers market or grocery store, it's easy to take for granted all the many hours of work that go into a single loaf of bread. Or at least, it is until you have the chance to insert yourself directly into the middle of the process.

On Saturday morning about two dozen volunteers had the chance to do just that. At 6 a.m. a group gathered at the PHX Renews site in Indian School Park to help Hayden Flour Mills harvest one acre of White Sonoran Wheat.
