Anyone got a mill in Brooklyn?

 

Greetings fellow bakers.

I made a mistake last month. I took advantage of a free shipping deal on edenfoods.com to order 10 5lb bags of hard red spring wheat flour. Only when it arrived, I discovered that I had inadvertently ordered wheat berries, not flour. This is disappointing because I don’t have a mill. Eden will take it back, but the return shipping would be higher than the cost of the flour!

Now I have to figure out what to do with 50lb of berries! Has anyone got a mill in Brooklyn? Not sure I could lug 50lb of flour anywhere on the subway, but if someone wanted to buy the berries, or otherwise help me get them milled into flour in exchange for some of the berries, please do get in touch!

Thanks,

David

 You can grind them to flour with a Vitamix, if that opens up your search.  If you are near Church and Ocean Parkway, you can use mine.

Pretty sure my wife wouldn't let me beat up on the Vitamix like that. I'm in Clinton Hill, probably too far to schlep 50 lbs of berries. :-(
