The North Carolina Organic Bread Flour Project

To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, 
of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, 
from the effort of loving to the making of bread. — James Arthur Baldwin

The North Carolina Organic Bread Flour Project (NCOBFP) aims to link the farmer, the baker, and the miller in North Carolina with the goal of providing a viable market for organic hard and soft wheat and other small grains.

The vast majority of bread wheat in North Carolina is trucked in from other parts of the US, so the price of wheat is compounded with the increasing fuel costs.  

NCOBFP works to foster the relationship between the grower, miller and baker to provide a tangible level of security and sustainability for all three.
