We offer a FREE milling service for our CSA members, available seven days a week at Wheatberry Bakery: 321 Main St., Amherst MA 01002.
However if you would like to purchase your own home mill, there are many options available.
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 is a German mill company that produces the highest quality home mills on the market today. Komo is the brand of mill that is available for free use at Wheatberry. They are also available through Pleasant Hill Grain.
We also currently have two Komo mills available for sale at Wheatberry Bakery. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in purchasing one directly from us.
The slightly more economical choice is the Nutrimill also available through Pleasant Hill Grain. This is an electric mill that has settings to produce both coarse and finely ground flours.
Handmills can also be found online through Pleasant Hill, 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.
“We bought a Lehman’s brand hand mill. It’s cheap and does a good job, although it does take a fair amount of work! (As do all hand mills, I imagine). I usually run the grain through on a medium grind, sift it, then run the bigger pieces through again on a fine grind, then sift out the bran (or not, depending on what I’m using it for). To sift it I use a regular mesh kitchen strainer.” -Caroline, CSA member
