When milling corn, corn flour + corn meal are the byproducts - what amazing byproducts! Next Step Produce's 2 pound bag of corn meal is ready for polenta! Follow the recipe on the bag to achieve polenta smiles.
Next Step Produce is a certified organic farm in Maryland that is "Committed to Growing Nourishing Food in Harmony with Nature" through soil-building, nutrient-density, and a diverse plant-based farming system. We met farmers Heinz, Gabrielle, and their daughters in the early days of Number 1 Sons.
They are quite the pioneers in the Mid-Atlantic farming community. Their greenhouse and grain-drying process is powered by a high-efficiency wood-burning furnace, with wood sourced by selective low-grading right from their property. They have specialized equipment from Japan so they can grow and process rice, grains and beans - things that normally aren't grown in our region! You may have eaten their foods at Seylou Bakery or A Rake's Progress :)
