Just for grins, I searched for flour mills in the USA that sell to the public.  It was a fun exercise.  In addition to the larger, better-known names such as King Arthur Flour, there are some mills that are probably in TFLers’ back yards.  Since I don’t know most of the millers or their products, I leave it up to you to do your own experimentation.


Please note that I focused primarily on sources that have on-line stores.  That means that I left out some that sell only through localized retail outlets.  Also note that some of these are very small and may have limited offerings, such as only cornmeal.  And I’m sure that the list is in no way exhaustive.  Feel free to add your own suggestions.


The list is in no particular order.  However each listing will be in the form of mill name, state, website.  Here’s the list:


Lakeside Mills, North Carolina, website

The Stafford County Flour Mills Company, Kansas, website (I can find their products in supermarkets in the KC area)

North Dakota Mill, North Dakota, website

Prairie Mills, Indiana, website

Shawnee Milling Company, Oklahoma, website

I also came across this listing of operating gristmills, which may be of interest.

And, just when you thought you knew all about stone-ground flour, here’s The Stone Cold Truth About Stone Ground Flour.  Worth a rant or two, I’m sure.

AHHHH So happy to have found this forum! What a GREAT place to throw around ideas!

I am a whole wheat crack head and have so many questions it is not even funny!

Where to start?  hehe

First off, I am located in Pensacola Florida which is a "Wheat-AWAY" zone as far as I can see.  We have a local bakery here The Bread of Life which is good but it is not as cheap as anyone else out there in Montana or Idaho or where ever you can order it and pay for shipping.
