Buying Your Own Mill

Personal home mills are convenient for the frequent miller.  There are many options that range from hand mills to wooden stone mills.  Our experience has shown that these are the best options:

Komo

Komo is a German mill company that produces the highest quality home mills on the market today.  They are available through our Amazon store.  (We have a Komo in our home kitchen, and used one at our cafe for years.)  The Komo is more beautiful, and slightly quieter than a Nutrimill, but more expensive.

Nutrimill

The slightly more economical choice is the Nutrimill, also available through our Amazon store.  This is an electric mill that has settings to produce both coarse and finely ground flours.  This is the mill we use at our farm milling stations.

Handmills

Handmills can also be found online through Nova Natural, Amazon, Google, or many other sites.  They can range from 40-500 dollars.  They are good for milling small amounts of grain at a time.
