Hard Red Winter Wheat, Organic Methods, N.C.

Davidson, N.C.--Farmer Brad Hinkley grows wheat in North Carolina. He grows many other things at Coldwater Creek Farms but for the past few years he's been growing hard red winter wheat using organic practices. I interviewed him at the Davidson's Farmers Market in April.

He used to be a certified organic farm so he knows what he is doing. He has 18-acres of wheat that up until recently he had ground at a local restaurant.

"I bought a mill to grind our wheat," he said with a broad smile that lit up his bearded face. He also grind grits.

If you want to try his products you can either go to the Saturday morning Farmers Market in Davidson, find a restaurant in Charlotte using his products or contact Hinkley at (828)406-0849.

He'll sell and ship them to you if you pay for them and shipping.

I think these grits could easily compete with Anson Mills Grits.
