Online sources for heirloom grains and legumes

slyc Nov 3, 2011 12:46 PM

Anyone know of good online shops for heirloom grains and legumes? I got really excited about cooking with them after reading the New Yorker article about Sean Brock: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/10/31/111031fa_fact_bilger (subscription required).

I know about Anson Mills (http://www.ansonmills.com/) and Rancho Gordo (http://www.ranchogordo.com/). Any others?

    Phipps http://www.phippscountry.com/store.htm

    They have a ton of things showing as out of stock right now, don't know why -- but they belong on any list of bean sources anyway. I haven't bought from Phipps online before, only in their store.

      Zursun sells heirloom grains and legumes via foodzie (http://zursunbeans.foodzie.com/#). Can't vouch for them. I also can't vouch for Old School Mill (I usually go to Anson Mills), but I'm tempted to try their grits (http://www.oldschool.com/).

        I probably am biased as I live in Boise but these beans are great
