By purchasing food from sustainable farms, you play a vital role in improving environmental quality, providing security to farmers and rural communities, and demanding fair labor practices.
Back to basics. When you purchase local produce, you’re getting fresher, safer and tastier food. The average produce item travels 1750 miles from farm to market. When you buy products from Dominion Harvest, the products travel at the most, approximately 100 miles.
Produced in small batches from select hickory bark and still involves the tradition of foraging in the Virginia forests. We prefer to use the bark from the shagbark hickory tree, in particular, which is shed naturally, so as not to harm the tree in any way. We do not limit ourselves to this particular species, although no tree is ever harmed in the process. We do blend our hickory barks and re-purpose bark from dead hickory trees. This allows the tree to remain a sustainable resource.
We use the traditional Orleans method of vinegar production which dates back to 1616 in France. This process takes approximately 2-3 months to convert the wine to vinegar with an additional 6 months for aging.
Any good vinegar is best treated like wine after opening. Limited exposure to oxygen is critical to the freshness of any vinegar. Do not refrigerate and we recommend that the vinegar should be used as quickly as possible (within 6-8 weeks) after opening.
We are happy to carry on the milling tradition of the Kennedy/Wade families. We offer whole grain, stone ground grits, stone ground flours and mixes. We have stone-ground, whole grain whole wheat bread flour; stone-ground white bread flour, stone-ground all purpose flour, stone ground white and yellow corn meal, stone-ground polenta, buckwheat flour and whole grain rye.
