George Washington's Heirloom Grain - Sea Island White Flint Corn

SKU 31474

A native corn, primarily used by tribes prominent in coastal regions, this heirloom grain was a staple of coastal Carolina and Georgia. Naturally paired with seafood dishes from the region, this variety of grain was thought to be the most delicate of corn for table use post civil war.

In 1771, after shifting from tobacco to wheat as his main cash crop, George Washington erected a new mill along Dogue Run. The innovative farmer-statesman added a wharf and began sending his finely milled flour by ship to Europe and the West Indies.
