More Mill Resources

New American Stone Mills – These are the mills fueling a revolution in grains around the world. Whenever I travel, I look here for places I want to visit.

Artisan Grain Collaborative Regional Map – This national map features the whole grain chain: farms, mills, bakeries, advocacy groups, conferences. Hunt for what you want where you want it, and if you see a hole, there’s a form right on the map page for updates. 

Note: The Artisan Grain Collaborative is a group working to build the grainshed in the Midwest, and I’m involved in the effort. Please contact me if you want to know/do more to help re-grow the bread basket.

GrowNYC Grains – Head here for all kinds of fresh flour & malt facts and inspiration. GrowNYC Grains was and is a key player in establishing a grainshed in the Northeast. If you want one place to burrow for regional grain resources, from fact sheets to videos and purchasing opps, this is your spot.  

Thousand Bites of Bread – My friend Adrian has lots of information for all your baking and milling curiosities. If you’ve got questions about what bakeries to visit, and home milling, head over to her site.

Milling Books

If most of these texts seem ancient, that’s because info on milling disappeared as mills disappeared from communities, about 100-150 years ago.
