Barkley’s Mill on Southern Cross Farm is proud to announce that their gourmet grits are officially Non-GMO Project Verified! This is yet another testament of their commitment to bringing their consumers the very best quality grits possible.
The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only third-party verification and labeling organization for non-GMO food and products, and Barkley’s Mill is extremely proud to be a part of such a coveted group. GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses, and other animals and plants. These experimental combinations of genes cross the natural species barrier and have not been proven safe.
Barkley’s Mill is a southern company dedicated to growing the highest quality heirloom Hickory King Dent white corn. We hand select each ear of corn three times before hand selecting the kernels of corn that go into our bags of Stoned Happy Grits! We grind our grits on vertical stones with a hydro powered gristmill as not to exceed temperatures that will cook out the nutrients and flavor our of our gourmet grits. We never use herbicides, pesticides, or any preservatives on our non-GMO corn. This helps us ensure the very best bowl of southern goodness from our farm to your table!
