Single Source Short Run: Rye
Healthy. Tasty. Hopeful.
▻ high fiber
▻ high protein
▻ whole heirloom grains
Rye is a hearty grain that is prized by distillers and brewers for its dry, subtly spicy taste. It does not have the strong flavor of traditional Caraway-Rye bread; that comes from the caraway seed.
Rye is subtle, richer in flavor than wheat, and id also delivers enormous health benefits. Rye is high in fiber, as well as the important B vitamins, as well as crucial minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, iron, cobalt, copper, zinc, chrome, phosphorus, iodine, and boron.
GROWN AND MILLED AT JANIE'S MILL IN ASHKUM IL
This Dark Bono Rye is grown and milled by Janie's Mill in Ashkum, IL - a leading organic farm and mill that is reviving and revitalizing the ancient art of stone-milling whole grains.
Stone-milled flours (all of our flours are stone-milled) are richer in flavor and nutrition than grocery-store flour, because they haven't had anything stripped out. They have a shorter shelf life (still many months) because they're real food - not an industrial imitation.

SHORT-RUN SINGLE SOURCE SERIES
Each 12oz heirloom grain pancake mix in this series will feature grains from just one regenerative farm, bringing you stories of how that farmer is working to hand a longer and better future down to the next generations. Explore the rich variety of nutrition-dense flavors that prior generations worked so hard to hand down to us. Simply scan the QR code on each bag to see these stories.
Sourcing in this way allows us to showcase the meaningful but often invisible work that these farmers do, day in and day out. This direct trade relationship also guarantees a fair price for their crop.
Thank you for supporting a regenerative farm today! It is your interest in regenerative farming that will convince more farmers to farm more acres more responsibly.

FAQ (waffles, etc)
How many pancakes does it make? →
1lb bag: 50 4 inch pancakes, 10 at a time. 12oz bag: will make 40 4 inch pancakes, 10 at a time. Shake Packs: 10 4 inch pancakes (or 6 6 inch pancakes).
Can I make waffles with these? → Yes. Add 2T/30g liquid to any of our pancake instructions.
Is it organic? → All of the grains in our pancake mixes are organic. We are a small operation and it doesn’t make sense for us to pay to certify organic. Yet.
Why is there so much protein? → We use heirloom grains with high protein content and (sometimes) nut meal. We do not use any industrially manufactured protein powders.
Is it NON-GMO? → Yes it is. GMO foods are bad for the soil, bad for biodiversity, bad for the resilience of local economies, bad for long-term pest management, and really bad for family farms. We are a small operation and it doesn’t make sense for us to certify Non-GMO. Yet.
It is Vegan? → All of our mixes are vegan. View vegan preparation instructions.
Is it whole grain? → Yes. Yes. All of our pancake mixes are not just whole grain, but whole-kernel. Our grains are stone-milled, which is the most complete kind of grain you can eat. Most so-called 'whole grains' have the germ (the most nutritious part of the grain) removed to extend shelf life. It's a trick, and we don't use it.
What are Heirloom Grains? → Heirloom grains are grains selected and planted from the best of each year’s crop, as was done for thousands of years before the industrial revolution. They have a variety and richness of flavor that modern grains simply cannot approach. Many of them contain gluten, but their gluten structures are fundamentally different: gentler, easier to digest.
How come popcorn flour is so low on the White Knight ingredient list? → Because it’s so light, and ingredients are listed by weight. It’s over half the product, by volume. That’s the whole point ;)

What we hand down to the next generations matters.
Building a regenerative food system is literally the planet’s best hope at handing down a livable world to the next generations. That’s why we source our heirloom grains from small regenerative farmers who use restorative practices (like no-till farming, crop rotation, cover cropping, and composting) capture carbon, build biodiversity, filter water, and restore critical topsoil for future generations. All while plowing profits into small-business economies.
Thank you for handing down something better.
I easily made a variety of Long Table Pancakes for Thanksgiving morning for eight of us. They are so good and filling that they kept us until an evening Thanksgiving Supper. Every variety was a hit with the family.
Delicious. As a Scandinavian descendant,
I love all things rye.
