Review of Homestead Gristmill by TexasRealFood
Located in Waco, Texas, Homestead Gristmill offers a wholesome taste of fresh-ground whole grains from their historic timber-frame “water-powered mill” that was originally built in 1760. Given a new life as Homestead Gristmill in 2001, they open it to public year round, grinding “fresh whole wheat flour and corn meal.” In addition, they also grind oats, rye, spelt, rice, buckwheat and soybeans. They use the single-step process of grinding with natural granite stones which preserves the nutritional value of the grain. All the grains are grown without chemical pesticides and fertilizers. You can visit Homestead Gristmill and watch the “milling process” and tour the store, which features fresh samples of various baked items, unique gift items for the kitchen and home, and dozens of delicious natural mixes that can be taken home and enjoyed.
