Our grain is transformed on our Meadow Mills 12" Stone Burr Mill. They have been manufacturing stone burr mills since 1902. Meadows stone burr mills, also referred to as grist mills, are designed to grind all dry, free-flowing grains into flour, meal, or grits. The millstones used in all Meadows stone burr mills are cut from Balfour pink granite which is quarried in North Carolina. The millstones operate in pairs with a revolving millstone called the "runner" stone and a stationary millstone called the "bedstone." The millstones are set vertically, a feature unique to Meadows' stone burr mills. The surface of each millstone is a combination of "furrows" which are grooves cut into the face of the millstones and "lands" which are the flat areas of the millstones.
