SHOPPING: Hodgson Mills

Having used white flour for quite some time as the warehouse club usually stocks two or three varieties some being a Con-Agra and King Arthur brand, I wanted to get more variety in the types of flour we use for baking. Doing some research, I decided to try Hodgson Mills as their prices and shipping seemed to be reasonable and at one place (website) I could get a wide variety of flours and grain products for baking. Hodgson Mills also offers a choice of organic flours and meals along with pasta products, cereal and mixes. One plus is that they offer a paper catalog by mail that I had received. Ordering through their website was fairly easy though their search engine didn’t give me any results when I typed in a product number and I used the paper catalog as a guide to order the products by the categories they are in. I placed the order via the web on 9/30/10 and received the confirming email with a notation that the UPS ground shipping would be 10-14 business days. On 10/04/10 the debit cleared through my bank. Hodgson didn’t provide a separate email for shipping confirmation or tracking number for the UPS delivery. On 10/15/10 the order was on my doorstep. consisting of the full order with no items back ordered.

Products:
Brown Milled Flax Seed,  quantity: 1, price: $2.55
Wheat Bran, Unprocessed (Millers Bran),  quantity: 2, price: $3.50
Multi Purpose Baking Mix,  quantity: 1, price: $2.55
All-Purpose, Unbleached Naturally White Flour,  quantity: 4, price: $15.00
White Corn Meal, Plain - 5 lb.,  quantity: 2, price: $7.10
Whole Grain Rye Flour - 2 lb.,  quantity: 1, price: $2.60
Whole Wheat Flour - 2 lb.,  quantity: 1, price: $2.60
Buckwheat Flour,  quantity: 1, price: $3.80
Active Dry Yeast,  quantity: 1, price: $1.00
Sub Total:   $40.70
UPS Ground 10-14 business days Shipping: $14.50

The flax seed, wheat bran and multi purpose mix are packaged in boxes and the other items (except yeast) come in the traditional paper flour type bag and all were in good condition shipped in two boxes with green packing peanuts. All of the packages provide recipes and/or info on the products, even on how Graham flour got it’s name. Hodgson Mills also offer some of their flour products in 2lb.,5lb and case quantities. Their web site also has numerous recipes. Most of the products are stone ground which is supposed to be superior to other types of milling.
