What Our Members Are Saying

These are just a few examples of the overwhelmingly positive experiences they have!

Dear Ben,

I’ve been making your cool control whole wheat bread ever since you shared the recipe. It is indeed foolproof, and it is outstanding! Never before have I had success with 100% whole wheat bread and I tried for years. Thank you so much!…

…I made this loaf of rye bread per your instructions and it is outstanding!

Thanks to you, at last I am able to make
consistently excellent 100% whole grain breads.

Now I hope it will be possible to change my 2016 grain CSA from a half share to a full share. I will go the website later on and try to do that.

Many thanks again!

Grinding wheat berries and other grains to bake with has been part of our lifestyle for many years.  When Ben started the PVGH CSA, we jumped at the opportunity to buy wheat that was locally grown. Now, we’ve experimented with the different varieties of wheat available from PVGH, and we have learned what our favorites are for biscuits, cookies, crumble, crusts, etc.  The quality is phenomenal, and each year the distribution process has provided increased flexibility of choice. Thank you, PVHG; keep it up!

As someone who chooses not to eat wheat, I’ve gotten a lot of value out of the grain share.

Most of the baking I do is with the oats, buckwheat and corn from the share, which I grind into flour. I’m very happy with the results.

The variety of beans available is wonderful and the popcorn is always a highlight for me.

rave review:
I’ve been making my own bread for years, but this recipe changed everything.  I don’t have to set aside a day anymore, or settle for soda bread. It’s truly only a few minutes in the making—I just have to plan ahead far enough to be able to bake it within a day.  I have changed the recipe several times, and settled on my favorite, made with fresh ground flour, milk and a bit of honey.  Delicious!
