Inventory Check: Grain Grinder/Mill

Here's today's inventory check: do you need a grain grinder?

Have you bought wheat berries? Do you plan to grind rice into rice flour, or beans into bean flour? Perhaps you will plant corn so you can make your own cornmeal?

You need a grinder. A hand mill. Preferably one that doesn't use electricity, unless you want to be stock with 400 pounds of wheat berries, and no way to grind them into flour. There are many different kinds of grinders and hand mills. Check them out. Make your purchase. Make a back-up purchase. Then practice using them. Get out those wheat berries and rice, and grind them into your flour.

You'll be glad you practiced. It ain't easy!

  1. The best "bang for your buck" is the Family Grain Mill.

    It has a detachable mill that can be used with either a hand-crank base, or a motorized base, PLUS it has attachments (meat grinder, vegetable processor, flaker) that can b added for more versatility.
