We select high-quality produce from our and other local farms, and forage the best wild foods at their peak from our hedgerow and the Midwest prairies and forests.
All of our harvest goods are hand-crafted by skilled chefs so you get a product that accentuates the Midwest's bounty of flavors.
Berries and Flour is a Cottage Food Operation. All of our products are produced in a home kitchen not subject to public health inspection that may also process common food allergens. All of our chefs are appropriately licensed, and we take great care to ensure the safety of our products.
Thank you for your patronage and support of local foods!
We are a very small business, so we need 8 days to process, schedule, and make your order. We may be able to make things sooner, but please communicate with us before you place an order.
The Illinois Cottage Law was written to allow small vendors the opportunity to make goods in home kitchens, and sell at farmer's markets while still allowing public health to monitor the operations. All Cottage Operations should be registered with CU Department of Public Health and will be listed on their website.
2018 brought some exciting changes to the law, allowing more products to be made and sold. You can read all about the law here. Cottage Food Guide
All bakery goods are made in our home kitchen, with staff who has been certified in safe food handling exactly as restaurant chefs and workers have been. Certain ingredients or preparations are not allowed to be made or sold by Cottage Operations: for example, fresh cut fruit and dairy products will never be on our cakes (but can be baked into them!).
