sorry for the off-topic comment but, do you have any idea where one can get flour locally? i'm having little to no luck on this one...is it even a possibility?

According to the San Diego County 2006 Crop report (the latest available), San Diego County harvested 1800 acres of barley and 395 acres of oat in 2006, but absolutely no wheat or any other type of grain. If you are interested in following up with the barley or oat growers, I have the contact information for those farmers (drop me an email), although the barley and oats are most certainly conventionally grown, not organic.

Imperial County did grow wheat back in 2006, but I do not know if any of it was organic, nor do I have any contact information. You may want to try the Imperial County Agricultural Commissioner.

So, in short, no I don't know anywhere to get flour grown locally, so I would suggest sourcing from northern California. Try www.localharvest.org where last time I checked, there were a couple different options for grains.

It has been awhile since I stopped by, but I'd like to add our Leucadia Farmers Market to your list.
