  1. I’m in the process of deciding whether or not to mill my own flour and your information is much appreciated! Thanks! I’ll check out the rest of your site now that I’ve found it 🙂 It looks like it will be a good one.

    1. Hi Jodi,
      I’ve been milling my own flour since January 2005. I’ve not bought a loaf of bread, buns, etc. since I started making my own. No comparison in the taste and nutritional value from freshly milled grain.
      Enjoy!
      Lynn
