Peddler: (1) someone who travels about selling his wares (as on the streets or at carnivals);  (2) also known as a canvasser, cheapjack, monger, or solicitor (with negative connotations since the 16th century), is a travelling vendor of goods, wares, or merchandise, including any food or beverage, from a vehicle, cart, or any other conveyance that is not stationary

THE FLOUR PEDDLER: THE DEDICATED PROVIDER OF 50 SUSTAINABLE GRAIN REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE

The Flour Peddler is a family business dreamed up and maintained by the Hergesheimer family, who make their home in Roberts Creek, BC. The Flour Peddler’s overall goals are to provide small batch, high quality fresh flour milled from locally grown grain to interested customers through out Southern BC. The bottom line of this operation is to educate about the lost art of community milling and to build strong and sustainable relationships between farmers, millers, bakers and eaters. We are convinced that these relationships will assist with the development of strong ecologically, socially and economically viable grain chains.

By working directly with farmers and through direct marketing, the Flour Peddler is able to establish and preserve traceable stages in most of our grain supply chains. As a result of our ongoing relationships, we are now able to source 90% of our whole grains locally. We believe that home baking benefits from grains being farmed locally and naturally.  Our commitment to the flour quality, that is always milled fresh, will enhance your home baking.

Interested customers can find us riding our pedal powered grain bikes at Farmers Markets in your local area. The Flour Peddler always offers the freshest stone milled whole grain flour as well as our unique bicycle pedaled flour during public events such as demonstrations and farmers markets.
