His is strictly a whole-grain operation. The organic all-purpose flour sold under the Fairhaven brand actually comes from Central Milling in Utah. Fairhaven isn’t simply not equiped to produce such flour. Christenson is currently working with Snohomish County farmers who are seeking a grant to finance the installation of an organic white flour mill. It would cost over $1.5 million. Fairhaven still uses its original stone mill but only to make coarse meal (which some local bakers order every week). All the other flours are hammermilled.
