Fresh Ground Grain the Old Fashioned Way

  Today we visited a little store that carried grains that were ground right in their back yard. The power to operate the mill came from the water flowing from the river. Someday, maybe I can grow my grains and grind them too! It would help if I lived on a river and could use the power of the river to make my grain mill work, like they do at Nora Mill Granary in Helen, Georgia.
Here is the mill at work. A very natural and peacefulway to get your grits and cornmeal. While I was there I picked up some white speckled grits and some yellow cornmeal. Also, there was whole wheat bread flour that I want to try. Then we went to the coffee shop next door where they roast their coffee beans locally. I want to do that too. I want to grow my own grains and coffee. Probably would need to have a really big backyard for all of that. Will experiment with the bags of grains I bought, when I get home!
