     Autumn Newsletter, September 28, 2014
 
When you cook for family and friends, you want the healthiest and finest ingredients. At Kenyon's Grist Mill, we only offer the best. Our stone ground products can be used in endless recipes. For example, our four types of corn meal (white, yellow, blue, and red) can be substituted in any recipe that calls for cornmeal. We also have a variety of mixes and flours.  Stone ground products are much healthier than steel ground products, because the vital quality and nutrition of the grain is preserved. Although the modern steel grinding process is much faster, the grain is usually sprayed with a pesticide to lengthen its shelf life. It is then processed through a series of rollers that strip the grain's layers, removing the outer layer first and then several layers of bran...

"The greatest wealth is health," wrote Virgil. As a son of a farmer, this ancient Roman poet recognized that there was more to wealth than monetary gain. Today, more than ever, millers and farmers need to be reminded of this. At one time or another, we all have to make a choice to invest in a healthy path or sell out to an alternate approach. Just as farmers need to maintain best farming practices, millers are also responsible for grinding the finest grain and maintaining its integrity. Unfortunately, the common practices and methods of agri-business and massive flourmills have produced a "fools gold", which has caused health problems across our nation. Some of these methods have actually been outlawed in others countries. Although doing things the right way is not always the most lucrative, it does produce quality products...
