Find out what makes this golden flax special...

Dear LocalHarvest Customer,

If you like to know where your food comes from, and that it's grown organically and sustainably, A-Frame Farms is your place to get the highest quality golden flax. In a food world with so many options to choose from, flax is like an old friend from our superfoods list. It's a tried-and-true mainstay of many nutrient-packed, delicious recipes!

A-Frame Farms is a certified organic 400 acre diversified cropping system of corn, soybeans, spring and winter wheat, oats, barley, golden flax, yellow peas, alfalfa, and restored native prairies and wetlands. Their organic golden flax has a delicious, nutty flavor, and is rich with omega-3 essential fatty acids.

If you like to make your own snack bars, A-Frame Flax is a choice ingredient. The freshest, best way to eat and use flax is to buy whole seed and grind it yourself -- don't worry -- it's as easy as grinding coffee in the morning. We love this simple, quick recipe for seedy granola bars from the Minimalist Baker. Or, if you're a purist, grind your flax seeds and add as a topping to yogurt and fruit, or put a couple tasty tablespoons in your smoothie.

Enjoy!!
