Howdy, all! On this chilly day here in the mountains of Ashe County NC I have been working on getting my store set up. I wanted to do a little posting and let you all know that all cornmeal bundles and singles have been posted. You can purchase one to try or bundle them up. Everything is made fresh from our family to yours. I do hope that you enjoy!!
Please note that shipping is only included if mailed in the US. I will get in touch with you if additional shipping is required. So head on over to our new shop and check things out.
Stone milling is rare these days, at New River Mills this “old-fashioned” milling method grinds the corn between two large rotating stones. The stones crush and grind the corn slowly, and at low temperatures 70-deg, without destroying valuable nutrients of the grains.
Nowadays most commercial flour and corn milling is performed by high speed, big volume steel cylinders or hammer mills. Cylinder mills grind grains between cylinders that rotate at high-speed to grind and smash the kernels instantly, and a great deal of heat is generated. At these high temperatures, most of the healthful live enzymes in the meal and flour are eliminated, and many valuable nutrients are destroyed.
With New River Mills stone burr milling, nothing is separated or added to the natural grain. The germ, oil, and bran remain intact, along with natural freshness, flavor, aroma, and nutrients. In fact, the germ contains large amounts of vitamins A, D, B-complex, and E. The germ in corn, wheat, and other whole grains is a live product which can become rancid if stored at room temperature–that’s why stone-ground whole grains should be either refrigerated or frozen. New River Mills has a tough lined bag and resealable tin-tie to keep in the freshness.
