As one of North America’s leading flour and ingredient suppliers, Ardent Mills purchases a wide array of grains from family farms all over the country. But we go beyond simple transactions; we partner with our producers for the long run, offering them the support they need to grow.
When working with Ardent Mills, growers gain new insight into consumer demands and have access to many projects that help farmers transition acres to innovative, increasingly popular grains. These projects provide producers with the education, assistance and even the financial support needed to profit from organic or alternative grain varieties. We work directly with producers to contract select grain varieties and identity-preserved grains, making the decision to plant something new even easier. Ardent Mills also knows how important sustainability is to both growers and consumers, and we work with customers to communicate producers’ stories about caring for the land.
