Most Arrowhead Mills products are USDA-certified organic—a designation in which they take great pride because it translates into clear benefits for you. Some research suggests that organic foods may have higher levels of antioxidant vitamins than their conventional counterparts—for example, organic strawberries contain more vitamin C than those that are conventionally grown. Organic foods may also have higher levels of minerals and phytonutrients—those nutrients that promote health, though more research is needed to affirm the nutritional value of organic versus conventional products. Scientific studies also show that eating organic foods may lower the levels of potentially harmful pesticides in your body. At Arrowhead Mills, the way they see it is that when you take out all those synthetic chemicals, there's just more room left for natural goodness.
But the human health benefits of organic food production paint only half of the picture. The health benefits for the environment make up the balance. Organic farming methods help block toxic chemicals from entering groundwater and rivers, ultimately keeping these chemicals from showing up in our drinking water. Organic farming also reduces topsoil erosion because farmers use such practices as crop rotation. In addition, organic agriculture actually reduces non-renewable energy use by decreasing agrochemical needs. At the same time, organic farming inhibits the development of resistant strains of insects and pests, and prevents the buildup of synthetic chemicals that would otherwise remain in the environment, putting wildlife—and families—at risk for decades to come. Organic farming methods also offer health benefits for farm workers by reducing their exposure to potentially harmful herbicides and pesticide.
With so many healthful benefits, it's clear that eating organically grown foods from Arrowhead Mills is a "win-win" choice for your family and the environment. What's more, it simply makes good sense.
Call them locavores—Arrowhead Mills is unabashedly passionate about locally grown food—and for good reason. It's as fresh as you can get, because it's close. It tastes better, because it's been allowed to ripen naturally. And it's easy on the environment, because it travels fewer miles to its destination, helping to limit pollution, lower harmful greenhouse gases and improve air quality. Even better, purchasing locally grown foods is a socially responsible choice because it's good for the local economy and promotes responsible long-term land development.
Arrowhead Mills sources more than 70 percent of their ingredients from local farmers, with fully 90 percent coming from North America. Arrowhead Mills' protein-rich Hard Red Winter Wheat is grown on farms within 100 miles of their headquarters in Hereford, Texas. Arrowhead Mills' corn is another local product, and they make every effort to purchase their other ingredients directly from local growers. In addition, all of Arrowhead Mills' organic ingredients are grown on certified organic land, and all of their growers are proven organic farmers with at least 10 years experience. Arrowhead Mills' farmers use all organic fertilizers, such as composted manure, which is not only free of pathogens, but also richly beneficial to the earth. Most of their farmers also use a highly efficient center-pivot irrigation system, which helps to conserve water. All of which proves that Arrowhead Mills shares the socially responsible values of their customers. Local. Organic. Pure. Wholesome. Oh, and of course their products are mighty tasty, too!
Commitment to the Environment
At Arrowhead Mills, they're deeply committed to protecting the planet. Arrowhead Mills grows their ingredients organically, using natural fertilizers and no potentially harmful pesticides or herbicides. Arrowhead Mills buys their ingredients as locally as they can, limiting their carbon footprint. And they package 100 percent of their products in recyclable boxes and bags made with 35 percent post-consumer waste. Arrowhead Mills' flours, for example, are packaged in sturdy paper bags with protective UV lining, which helps reduce exposure to UV light and preserves their freshness for longer periods.

Quite simply, a cleaner, safer environment for families—and for the many generations to come.
About Arrowhead Mills
Nourishing Your Family Since 1960
Arrowhead Mills has been one of America's most trusted organic baking brands for 50 years. Arrowhead Mills take great pride in the fact that more than half of organic food lovers from coast-to-coast count on their naturally enriched simply made products to nourish themselves and their families.
Arrowhead Mills' story has its roots deep in the Texas Panhandle, where Frank Ford—a pioneer in organic farming—founded the company half a century ago. Frank believed that pesticides and herbicides polluted the food chain, so he set out to farm organically grown corn and wheat. He ground his harvest into flour using a stone mill—which is still in use today at their facility—and then delivered it to local stores from the back of his pick-up truck. As word spread about organic farming, health stores around the country began ordering organic flour from the fledgling Arrowhead Mills. Soon, what began as a small, local company sprouted into a national business that now occupies a 20-acre site, complete with offices, manufacturing, labs where they do diligent gluten free testing, warehouse and grain-storage facilities. Today, their parent company is the Hain Celestial Group, one of the nation's largest natural and organic food companies.
As Arrowhead Mills has grown, their brand and their product line have grown with them. Over the years, they've added hot and cold cereals, as well as delicious pancake, waffle, cake and brownie mixes; nut butters; seasonal products; and gluten-free products—all of which taste great, are all-natural and are entirely free of chemical pesticides and herbicides. Arrowhead Mills' recipe for success is simple: Arrowhead Mills remain true to the core values and straightforward business practices on which their company was founded half a century ago. That's why they purchase many of their wholesome ingredients directly from local suppliers. It's why they emphasize environmental responsibility by maintaining sustainable farming practices with no harmful chemical pesticides and herbicides, and take decisive steps to shrink their carbon footprint and conserve their planet. It's why they provide pure, great-tasting grain and food products that cooks, homemakers and busy parents rely on as the cornerstone of their nutritional health. In short, it's why every day, in all they do, they continue to deliver on the Arrowhead Mills brand promise—simple products, straight from nature and as close as you can get to home.
