I've wanted to buy a wheat grinder to make my own flour sine somone demonstrated this at a meeting I attended. The flour was amazing. Anybody do this? Can you recommend a grinder? Where do you get the wheat?
We grind our own grains.<br>
We have the one from Nova Naturals<br><a href="http://www.novanatural.com/s.nl/it.A/id.1130/.f" target="_blank">http://www.novanatural.com/s.nl/it.A/id.1130/.f</a><br><br>
It works really well and the kids love to use it too.<br><br>
As for the grains.... we get ours from the bulk section of our co-op.
I have the Family Grain Mill. I've been using it for about a year and a half, and I'm pretty happy with it. I'd strongly recommend getting the electric motor base, though. Cranking by hand gets old FAST. I stuck it out for a few months before begging DH to buy me the motorized base for my birthday. I've ordered from Pleast Hill Grain several times now, and I've been happy with their service.<br><a href="http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/family_grain_mills.aspx" target="_blank">http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/fam...ain_mills.aspx</a><br><br>
I bought my wheat from Walton Feed. I was also happy with the service and with the wheat from Walton Feed.<br><a href="http://www.waltonfeed.com" target="_blank">www.waltonfeed.com</a><br><br>
Walton Feed also has a nice page reviewing some of the more popular grain mills: <a href="http://waltonfeed.com/self/grinders.html" target="_blank">http://waltonfeed.com/self/grinders.html</a><br><br>
Although I've never ordered from them, I've also heard good things about the wheat from Wheat Montana and Azure Standard.
I would also second the Nutrimill, and PleasantHillGrain.com was very quick. I got the Nutrimill + Bosch deal and have been loving it. I made four loaves/week.<br><br>
Make sure you have a good source for wheatberries before investing in a mill. There's no point in owning a mill if you have nothing to grind! I get my wheat in 50 lb bags from a local organic coop.<br><br>
