What you need to know:

Sourdough is bread like you used to get. It’s the way bread was always made, right up until the Industrial Revolution. In a sourdough culture, wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria work together to ferment the sugars and starches in your flour into simpler things like carbon dioxide, among others, which over time develop flavour, texture and help bread rise.

Your starter has been lovingly cared for over the last five years. It began with water, fresh-milled Almanac Red Fife Flour and wild apple skins grown on our farm. We’ve kept it going through care, use and feeding. To keep your starter happy we recommend naming it–it’s hard to ignore a friend. We recommend feeding it our Red Fife Whole Grain flour as that's what he lives on now. If you want to switch over to something else, do it slowly!
