Hayden Flour Mills is a family business that is devoted to making the freshest and most flavorful flours from some of the world's oldest varieties of wheat. The legend goes that in 1868, Charles Hayden was making his way North when he was stalled by dangerously high waters on the Arizona Salt River. While waiting for the waters to subside, he stood on top of Tempe Butte and looked out on the fertile land surrounding him, envisioning an ideal spot to establish a flour mill. More than 100 years later, Hayden Flour Mills is re-creating Mr. Hayden’s vision. By growing the same heritage grains on the same land, they are bringing back a time when flour was non-hybridized, minimally processed, and last, but certainly not least, flavorful.
