Hayden Flour Mills Pastry Flour is made entirely from Arizona-grown White Sonora wheat. This pastry flour isType 00, meaning it’sfinely ground into a soft powder for achieving professional-style bakes at home. Delicately sweet, this pastry flour is ideal for baked goods that should be tender and flaky with the right amount of structure, like thin-crust pizzas, tart shells, pie crusts, croissants and biscuits.
About the producer
Hayden Flour Mills was originally founded in 1874 in Tempe, Arizona. Once a thriving business, the mill eventually closed in the late 1990s. In 2009, farmer-turned-technology consultant Jeff Zimmerman decided to restore the Hayden Flour Mills legacy. Jeff invited his daughter Emma to help him run the mill and together, the new Hayden Flour Mills has been revitalizing ancient and heritage wheat native to Arizona as well as the art of stone-milling. This small-production, minimally processed approach to farming and milling captures all the flavors, textures and nutrients of Arizona heritage wheats.
