[Market-farming] growing corn, grinding and making corn meal

I am curious about this too.  I suspect the corn would need to be ground 
and bagged in a certified kitchen.  Then you'd need to deal with storage to 
ensure that critters did not get into the bags.  Cornmeal alone would 
likely not warrant building a kitchen facility but if it was part of an 
enterprise that produced other items it might make sense.  Of course, you 
can also sometimes find certified kitchens to rent or use for 
free.  Anybody out there grinding corn on a commercial--but small--scale?
