Traditionally Produced Rolled Oats. Buy them here.

Our new rolled oats are grown on a small family farm in Wisconsin using sustainable methods without any pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. As an added assurance they are also tested for the presence of glyphosate and no trace was found. We have tested many batches of oats nationwide, including those certified organic, and it has been extremely difficult to find sources with no trace of the herbicide glyphosate present.

These oats are processed by a small family-run mill, also in Wisconsin, and are never subjected to any heat processing and are truly raw. This mill is dedicated to milling only grains grown on nearby farms that are free from pesticides and herbicides.

The oats are processed in small batches in order to keep them raw and as fresh as possible, making them an artisan, handcrafted product. As such you may find they contain more oat hulls in the package than you would normally find in oats that are processed by huge machines in factories.

A simple way to remove any remaining hulls is to soak the oats before consuming them. Soak your desired serving of oats in water and the hulls will begin to float to the top and can be skimmed off, then stir the oats and skim again, repeat this until no more hulls float.

Truly raw rolled oats

  • Grown sustainably on a small farm
  • Glyphosate-tested and no trace found
  • Processed in a family mill in small batches

Given that these are truly raw oats we recommend storing them in your freezer until ready to use for optimal results.
