  1. Select this reward

    Pledge $30 or more About $30

    A 5-lb bag of limited edition Industrial Harvest flour from the project. I will ship to backers outside the Chicago and Seattle metro areas; backers inside these areas will need to come pick it up at one of the project events. Your choice, all-purpose white unbleached or whole wheat pastry flour. Because I'm getting it from a gigantic grain elevator in Chicago, it will unfortunately not be organic, but it'll be made with love. You'll also be acknowledged on the project website.

    A special field trip related to the project – perhaps you’d like to go with me to pick up the wheat at a gigantic grain elevator in Chicago, or perhaps you're interested in seeing the inside of a flour mill. IMPORTANT: If you want these rewards, speak up early! Wheat pickup and milling will happen in the last 2 weeks of June and I won't have total control over timing, so contact me if you have questions. Comes with 5 lbs of flour, and acknowledgement in the recipe booklet and on the project website.
