NICE website there.
I'm sure glad I posted the other day and woke this place up. Thank you
all for coming back.
The heritage wheat has my ear as I have four Meadows mills and a whole
flour mill of scourers, bolters and 'stuff'. We got one of the 24"
mills up a few weeks ago and it's grinding great. There is a local mill
up north of here and he wants us to get all our mills running, and the
bolters, as he can't begin to supply local need. He buys in organic hard
red, soft white and some various heritage wheats and for now we get from
him, almost at his cost. He has an old mill cleaner that really does a
job on wheat out of the field. y Amish buddy is raising Einkorn for
this. He has one of my mills at his place. We ground corn first on
it. Regular old Farm and Fleet feed corn. I gave some to a lady and
she flipped out about the fresh flavor. Made bread and grits/polenta
out of it.
Making a stainless and wood bagging set up now. Getting my self rising
mixer, wooden, back from Alabama soon. It's been in storage down there
for several years, just haven't made the trip since I bought it.
