Ardent Mills Commerce City logo5Ardent Mills will host a community, invitation-only event to celebrate the 80-year anniversary of their Commerce City Community Mill. From its origin in 1936, the mill and grain elevators have serviced a rich agricultural region of wheat fields and farmers from across Colorado. It is home of the innovative, first of its kind, ultra-fine milled whole wheat flour – Ultragrain. Local officials and dignitaries are scheduled to attend along with wheat growers, customers, team members and families, giving them the opportunity to learn more about the growing, harvesting and milling of wheat. Interactive stations will allow attendees to experience wheat’s field-to-fork story, from a milling demonstration to the making of pizza dough. Two of Denver’s top food trucks, Pavy’s and Basic Kneads, will use flour from the Commerce City mill to serve a variety of delicious sandwich and pizza offerings. Thursday, May 5, 2016, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30p.m. @ Ardent Mills Commerce City
