Maine Grains is located in the rural Maine town of Skowhegan, an area that bustled when its paper, wool, and shoe factories were humming. As with grain, these industries left in search of efficiency and large scale, and the town and its farms were left behind. Today, Maine Grains isn't just a new business, it's an engine of transformation. By re-localizing grain production and milling they support the health and livelihood of the farmers and communities they serve. Maine Grains is creating jobs, improving land use, and providing healthy food for all while serving as a successful model for thriving local economies. Their traditional stone milling process ensures nutrient-packed products that are full of flavor and perfect for natural fermentation baking and cooking. Equal Exchange appreciates the multi-faceted commitment demonstrated by Maine Grains to support local independent farmers and the community, and to restore and sustain the local regional agricultural economy.
