The Grainmaker

Okay try not to be jealous, but we have the ultimate of ultimate grain mills. It's quite fabulous. It is 100% hand made in Stevensville Montana (which is about 15 miles away from Ben's home town.) It's a hand crank type of grain mill, and boy is it a workout to crank out the wheat, rice and beans that we have been grinding. Yep you read right, not only does it grind wheat, it will also grind up just about anything. We have tried oat groats, beans, rice, and wheat, and it works so very fabulously!! We are big fans! It has been so fun learning to grind up different stuff and it's also a great way to get some energy out of the kids. Abby is quiet fond of grinding up the wheat. Check out the website, there they have much better information, as I am horrible with words!!
Ben's Dad sells these, so if you are interested let me know, and I'll connect you with him and then you could have this awesome investment in your home. If you have been waiting to buy a grain mill... this is the one you've been waiting's the Cadillac of grainmills!!!

Dear Allison,
hello my name is Erika. And I found your blog off of the Grain Maker website. I was looking for the opinion of a customer. I am gluten intolerant and looking for a mill to grind nut flour, and was wondering if you had ever used your mill to grind nuts? And if so does it only make nut butter, or is there a way to change the setting on the mill to make a nut flour? Hope you can help. Thanks, Erika.
