Our Commitment To You
Alaska Flour Company is a family-owned and family-operated flour mill located in Delta Junction, Alaska. We are committed to increasing food security in Alaska by providing high-quality products, and we are committed to doing it in a way that protects the land.
Alaska is at the end of a very long transportation chain. More than 95% of food in Alaska is shipped from the lower 48 states, and disruptions to our transportation occur on a regular basis. After observing the difficulty of getting food to the victims of Hurricane Katrina a few years ago, we chose to make locally grown food more available to Alaskans.
It takes time to grow an industry, and if it is to be available when we need it, we must support its growth. We hope you will support our efforts to provide you with locally grown food. We firmly believe that food security cannot be achieved without local agriculture.
Quality & Value
We provide a line of barley products ranging from simple flour to delicious barley brownies. We may cost a little more, but we believe “value” still refers to the worth of something, not how cheap it is. We know our products are a good value, because our customers get what they pay for: a high-quality, great tasting flour or cereal that yields exceptional results.
We mill Sunshine hulless barley that we grow on our own farm, where four generations of Wrigleys work to bring you the freshest, most wholesome food possible. Our flour is 100% whole grain flour, nothing added and nothing taken away. Our grain is USDA-inspected, and the flour mill is DEC-inspected. We strive to be environmentally friendly by using Best Management Practices including no-till planting to improve the soil and save fuel. We sample our soil so we know what nutrients the crop needs to be healthy, and we apply exactly that.
Growing Practices and Philosophy
We have switched to a no-till operation on our farm to improve the soil structure, retain moisture, and reduce the amount of fuel needed on our farm. Our cross-slot, no-till drill allows us to do ultra low-disturbance planting, preserving the microbial colonies in the soil that are necessary for good soil health. Learn more in the video below.
