Mic’s Mix is a family owned business out of Cove Orchard, Oregon, run by women. We are proud to offer highly nutritious, honestly delicious gluten-free flour blends we know you and your family will love! Our mission is to revolutionize your gluten-free baking experience to be more than just possible, to be great. We take pride in the fact that we are mothers running a globally conscious company committed to sustainability.
Michele, or as our family knows her, Grandma Mic, is the heart from which this company blossoms. An artist, adventurist, and mother to all, she first began baking as a young girl with her grandmother. Diagnosed Celiac, Michele didn't let that stop her from baking, and in fact, it paved the way for Mic's Mix. Being a bit of a rebel, she never let the constraints of wheat define what gluten-free baking could be. For over 30 years, Mic has been playing with possibilities, baking for family, and crafting the gluten free flours we know and love today. Not only has she created these amazing flour blends, her artistry can be seen on our labels ranging from fun loving birds, to our logo. Oh, and did we mention she's bald?
the ugly brown bag
In the beginning, there were glass jars. Michele would mix up a big batch of her latest flour concoction and share it with the family. We would return the jars and the cycle would continue. As Mic’s Mix came to be though, the reality of retailing flour in glass jars wasn’t exactly feasible. In wanting to keep sustainability at the forefront of the business, the “ugly brown bag” was born. Not catchy, not flashy, but compostable, which is kind of beautiful in itself.
Business Values, Brand Promises
In keeping true to our commitment to sustainability, we mix our flours by hand in small batches and source our flours locally whenever possible. This reduces our carbon footprint as well as our use of electricity.
As we evolve as a business, we hope to bring more to our communities and grow in our green technologies. We are a business, but we are also family, and we are mothers. We remember and honor this in our day to day practices. We do this business for our families, but we also do it for yours.
Our ZERO-CROSS Promise
As a family familiar with food allergies, we understand how serious cross-contamination can be, which is why our co-pack facility is dedicated gluten-free. Sourcing our grains from dedicated gluten-free facilities is our number one priority, this is our Zero-Cross Promise.
