Natural Awakenings News: Certified Organic Grains and More for the Holidays
Westwind Farm

Swartz Creek's Westwind Farm, LLC, is offering certified organic, freshly-ground Michigan-grown grains for the holiday season and through the winter. Owners Linda and Lee Purdy, who have been following the tenets of organic farming for over 30 years, also carry their own baking mixes–from cakes and cookies, muffins and scones–to pancakes, corn bread and their Three Bears Porridges series of hot cereals.

"Our pastry flour is silky smooth, with a low protein content of about 9%," says Linda Purdy, "while our 15.5% protein bread flour makes a hearty, crusty bread that thumps when coming out of the oven. And we carry everything in between, including spelt, buckwheat rye, corn meal, and our own all purpose blend."
Westwind Farm also carries honey, their own Hungarian paprika, pickles, frozen pumpkin pie filling, frozen basil pesto and farm fresh eggs.

"We also supply seasonal vegetables to our 30-family CSA share program during the summer months," adds Purdy. "For a limited time, we're also taking orders for Amish turkeys that are Michigan-grown and free of antibiotics and hormones."

Purdy is currently on the Board of Directors of MOFFA (Michigan Organic Food and Farm Alliance), bringing organic farmers together with those wanting to eat organic and preserve the Earth.

Westwind Farm, LLC is located at 11487 Reid Rd. Swartz Creek. For more information or to order, call Linda Purdy at 810-701-8151 or visit
