We have been growing our bakery program at our local Las Vegas cafes of the last year and a half. Over that period, we have learned a ton, and although starting out with great organic flour for our pastry and breads, we have decided to partner w/ Cairn Spring Mills for all of our grain and flours moving forward.
In the realm of artisanal bread-making and pastry, few names evoke as much reverence as Cairn Spring Mills. Our values directly align on everything from quality, sustainable business practices, old-world stone-milling, regenerative farming, sourcing as local as possible, supporting small family farmers, and most importantly, creating healthy and nutritious food.
Here are a few of the things that we are most excited about!
Uncompromising Quality: Vesta's dedication to sourcing only the finest ingredients is a fundamental pillar of our philosophy. With that, Cairn Spring Mills shares this commitment to uncompromising quality. Carin Spring meticulously selects superior, identity-preserved wheat, adhering to rigorous quality control standards that align seamlessly with Vesta's.
Artisanal Craftsmanship: Both Vesta and Carin Spring share a passion for preserving time-honored techniques. Here at Vesta, our bakers use traditional methods to create our signature sourdough breads, respecting the art and science of fermentation. Carin Spring understands the importance of honoring these artisanal traditions. By utilizing innovative milling techniques that strike a delicate balance between tradition and technology, Cairn Spring Mills provides us with flours that exhibit exceptional texture, flavor, and consistency.
Exceptional Flavor and Aroma: The profound impact of flour on the final taste and aroma of bread cannot be overstated. Cairn Spring Mills' commitment to quality sourcing and milling processes translate into flours that have unique and expressive flavor profiles. The partnership between our two brands ensures that every Vesta loaf is imbued with an irresistible depth of flavor.
Consistency and Reliability: The art of bread and pastry demands consistency and reliability. And with our dedication to providing our customers with exceptional bread requires flours that perform consistently batch after batch. Carin Spring's stringent QC measures and stone milling guarantee that each bag of flour delivers consistent results, allowing us to maintain the high standards we strive for. This reliability also ensures that our customers can enjoy the same extraordinary experience, time and again.
Sustainable Practices: Vesta's commitment to sustainability extends beyond the realm of bread and pastry, and we choose partners who share our values. Cairn Spring aligns with Vesta's ethos by prioritizing sustainable practices at every stage of flour production. From responsible sourcing to eco-friendly packaging, Cair Spring Mills actively contributes to a more sustainable future. Which represents a shared commitment to reducing our ecological footprints while creating extraordinary bread and pastry.
