Barton Springs Mill

Season 2 Episode 203 | 26m 47s

Just outside of Austin, James Brown has created a grain hub that connects the region’s bakers, chefs, brewers and distillers with organic heritage grains grown on Texas farms. The rise of artisan baking and craft brewing has spurred a resurgence in locally-milled stone-ground grain, and Barton Springs Mill gets unique varieties of wheat into the hands of Austin’s culinary artisans.
