I’ve posted about the amazing, historic Arva Flour Mill before. Their fantastic, artisanal flours are second to none for those with a passion for baking, especially bread baking. I recently discovered the mill has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds towards restoration work on the mill and its dam. They have a long way to go at this date, so I hope that the local food movement can get behind them and get them to their goal.
Arva’s flours are available at a couple places in Toronto, but you can also buy them online. Their 6 bags of flour special, with free shipping to Ontario and Quebec is a fantastic deal.
Please help keep this nearly 200-year-old historic gem going. As Canada’s oldest continuously operated mill, we simply can’t afford to let this important heritage and local food site fall to pieces.
