Welcome to our farmstead mill, Heartland Craft Grains!
We're the Schnadts - welcome to our family farm and grain mill in Lodi, WI!
We're 4th and 5th generation farmers raising the next crop of farm kids and unique grains on our land.
This adventure started when we pondered the question, "can you grow corn for flavor?" The answer is YES!
Not only do we select grains with a reputation for flavor, but our farm practices also focus on creating healthier soil, in turn growing nutrient-dense and flavorful grains to be enjoyed in the kitchen with family and friends.
Terroir isn't just for grapes - you can taste the difference and depth of flavor from the silty soil of the Lodi Valley. Our grains range from blue and polenta corns to ancient grains (like spelt and einkorn), and modern oats and wheat for pantry staples that perform.
Harvest 2023 is over halfway complete and now we cheer on our corn to the finish line for final fall harvest!
We take great pride in transforming our grains into a delicious and nutritious ingredient from our family to yours!
