June 2014 Bellingham, WA – Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods has a new partner in the grain industry – Shepherd’s Grain! Erin Baker, owner and founder, has always felt that supporting the local community is very important – especially when it comes to sourcing her ingredients. Partnering with Shepherd’s Grain is allowing the Breakfast Cookie and Granola company to bake with a high quality flour while supporting local northwest farmers in their practices of preserving the land.
Shepherd’s Grain is a farmer owned company consisting of farmers committed to no-till and direct seed agriculture to preserve our land with sustainable practices. These practices allow the farmers to maintain more nutrients in the soil naturally and improve crop yields while reducing soil erosion and fuel consumption. Nature has been growing plants since before we came along and these farmers are allowing nature to guide them as they reform the farming industry. We’re seeing a trend develop – People want to know where their food is coming from and Shepherd’s Grain allows just that. Every bag they produce has a lot code on it that tracks right back to the farm it was grown on with the story of that specific farmer and their family. This is allowing a reconnection of the farmer to the market place and the consumer which Erin Baker expresses is a beautiful thing! “I’m thrilled about this partnership, it feels so good and so right to support sustainable agriculture and the family farm, hopefully everyone will taste that love in every Breakfast Cookie” says Erin Baker.
