Heritage Wheat from Wisconsin
Welcome to our virtual farmstand. At Anarchy Acres, we are devoted to re-creating special wheat varieties from the past, and making them available to bakers today. We have been working hard since 2014 to find the wheat that made Wisconsin a leading producer in the 19th century, and to grow that wheat today in a way that reflects traditional farming practices. Our flour is healthy, good tasting, and available right now. Happy Baking!
Our hand-printed flour bags
All of our two-pound and four-pound flour bags are printed by hand on the farm using our antique letterpress. This machine was manufactured in Boston in the 1880's and makes beautiful impressions on our kraft-flour bags. The design of the bags is inspired by the advertising of the 19th century and includes an engraving based on an actual photograph of Charlie harvesting Marquis wheat by hand one year. On the backs of most bags we have added our favorite quotes from literature and a guide to heritage wheat uses in the kitchen. We want every part of growing and marketing wheat to be beautiful, and the letterpress exemplifies our values perfectly.
