January has been designated “Slow Cooking Month”, typically a time to share tried & true slow-cooker recipes (and believe us, we are big fans of this handy appliance). Here at Shiloh Farms, it is also an ideal opportunity to highlight the idea of “Slow Food” – dishes made from scratch using whole food ingredients and traditional techniques.
Many of us have treasured memories centered around the kitchen: stories shared around the kitchen counter, cherished recipes passed through the generations, and aromas and flavors that transport us to a specific place and time. However, in this age of on-the-go living, many of these traditions are being lost in favor of fast food, grab and go, and heat and serve.
There is certainly a place for these convenient options (no one has the time to make a meal from scratch every night!), but during these slow days of winter, why not take a lazy Saturday or quiet Sunday and try your hand at making Traditional Red Beans & Rice, cooked low and slow on the stovetop; forego the instant oatmeal in favor of a hearty, whole grain breakfast; or ditch the packaged mix and bake a cake from scratch instead? You may just find that the time spent, and memories made, will make the finished product taste even better!
To start you on your “Slow Food” journey, we’ve taken 25% off our Heirloom Grains, Beans, and PureLiving Sprouted Flours! Stop by ShilohFarms.com through January and save!

A natural process for preserving the many wonders of new life, sprouting increases the bioavailability of key nutrients in the whole grain and simplifies their absorption by the body for energy & nourishment! Learn more about sprouting (even how to try it yourself!) here.
Heirloom grains are true grains that have not been genetically modified, but rather grown as nature intended. Known as a dietary staple for thousands of years, these ancient grains gradually disappeared from dinner tables and were supplanted by modern varieties bred for yield rather than flavor or nutrition. However, they have experienced a resurgence in recent years as consumers have sought out alternatives to the bland and tasteless grain varieties that are prevalent today. Prized for their rich, distinctive flavors and unique nutritional benefits, heirloom grains are the very definition of the kind of wholesome, healthy foods Shiloh Farms strives to bring its customers. With Emmer Farro, Freekeh, and Multi-Color Popcorn varieties, the brand’s new line of Organic Heirloom Grains is a versatile, nutrient-rich, and hearty way of enhancing a healthy lifestyle.
Since 1942, Shiloh Farms has looked to the fullness of nature’s bounty to bring consumers superior products made with only the purest ingredients. As a leading provider of authentic natural foods, Shiloh Farms seeks to enrich the world one meal at a time.
