Corn Grits are Coming Soon!

The corn grits, grown and milled by Teagan farms, will be back in stock this October! If you haven’t tried these grits, you don’t know what you’re missing. We’ve been waiting all season to get our hands on them. What makes these grits so special? It’s made from an heirloom flint corn dating back in the Bradley family nearly 100 years, its pesticide free, and will be ground this week. Flint corn is known for a grittier, more granular texture. In Italy, it has been the choice polenta corn since the 16th century! Polenta is simple to make, low in fat/calories and nutritious!  Log into your FPP account to pre-order your grits for your October delivery!  $7.00/1 lb bag.
