Clearance: Country Living Grain Mill

This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.

The Country Living Grain Mill is a premium quality, high capacity hand operated mill that can easily be adapted to powered operation because its flywheel doubles as a V-belt pulley. The frame of the Country Living Grain Mill is strong cast metal alloy with a super durable powder coat finish. It's a very nice mill to use and a handsome piece of equipment with clean, functional lines and beautiful raised wheat heads on the side panels.

The grinding burrs for the Country Living Mill are a massive five inches in diameter, and they're precision engineered of high carbon steel—not the lower grade iron used in inferior mills. The large burrs help keep flour cool to preserve nutrient quality. The precision fit of the burr faces also means turning effort is unusually easy for a hand cranked mill, and especially so with the optional Power Bar handle extension. The Country Living Mill produces a cup of wheat flour in about 1-1/4 minutes. The grind is infinitely adjustable, so you can crack grain at a loose setting or tighten it down and get extremely fine whole grain flour in a single pass (or any texture between.)

  • “My wife and I choose the Country Living Mill and are very pleased. A phone call for technical information was very informative and friendly. Actually talked to real people that knew their products well and were enthusiastic to help me!”

A motorizing option is available, or you may want to build a motor drive of your own design. Some owners have also adapted their Country Living Mills to be driven off an exercise bike. The motorizing kit uses a commercial grade gearmotor, and this option can always be added to your mill later, if you choose.

The Country Living Grain Mill represents the ultimate in strength and durability, and the fit and finish are outstanding. The handle is hardwood, 7" long, and shaped to fit the hand comfortably. The mill has double sealed industrial ball bearings that are widely spaced to prevent wobble and minimize wear. Even with regular use, the Country Living Grain Mill will still be providing trouble-free service in your great-grandchildren's day.

No hand crank mill is easier to clean than the Country Living Mill. Just spin off the adjustment knob, and the outer grinding plate slides off for total access to the grinding area of the mill. You can brush the flour off the plates and reassemble again in one minute.

The Country Living Grain Mill grinds hard wheat, oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, dent (field) corn, dried sweet corn, split peas, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, sorghum, dry beans, lentils, chopped chestnuts and soybeans. (Big kernels like field corn require the optional large auger.) Herbs can be ground in small amounts. It will also crack grain to any size; you can set the adjustment knob to any consistency from extremely fine flour to meal to cereal grind or cracked grain.

The mill stands 13.5" tall and measures 12" wide & 10" deep, excluding handle. Weight 17.7 lbs. Flywheel diameter 12-1/4". The hopper capacity is 4.5 cups. Optional equipment is available, including a hand crank extension, corn/bean auger, table clamp, hopper extension, motorizing kit, and more. The mill can be bought separately, or in combo with accessories.

Country Living Grain Mills normally receive a final factory test with wheat. If you have a wheat restriction, just let us know and we can provide a mill that's had no contact with wheat.

Bottom Line: If you’re a highly detail-oriented person, we recommend sticking to “R1.” But after a week’s use, the main difference between one of these items and a brand new one will be the money you saved.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions

R1 Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.
R2 Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.
FR Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.
D Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.
DXD An item that we no longer sell new in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.
U Has had light use.
SD Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing.
NOS A brand new item that isn't the newest model.

    The Country Living Grain Mill is a well built piece of equipment. The design and size fills the gap between cheaper smaller hand crank units and smaller commercial units. The price is reasonable. I recommend getting the Parts Kit and Power Bar handle extension. For extended hand cranking, the Power Bar extension is necessary. Hand cranking isn't overwhelming if grinding for two, but at times I do wish the unit was motorized. I do have future plans to motorize as we rely more on more on naturally ground whole grain. However, the this mill is always available even without electric power. We rate it highly, it's built to last.

  • Great grain mill!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This mill is well built and can grind wheat from coarse to as fine as talcum powder which is great for making pastries, cakes and light breads. With the extension bar, it's easy to do, but does require an investment of time to get enough flour for a loaf of bread. We believe the result is well worth it! We mounted it on an inexpensive wooden breadboard to make it portable and secure it with two C-clamps when in use. It also looks decorative sitting on my antique Hoosier when not in use! We feel it was a good investment.

    Love this grain mill! We ordered the large auger to mill corn. The cornmeal this bad boy cranks out is silky and smooth!

  • Great exercise!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Very well built and performs as advertised. I own an electric mill, but felt this manual one was a necessity for emergency preparedness. I have especially enjoyed the oat grounds and corn meal ground with this mill. An additional benefit is exercising the triceps, other arm muscles and even upper body!

  • Works well for our needs!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Everything arrived in great condition. We bench mounted it, added the handle extension, then started using it to grind flour for ourselves and to crack corn for our chickens. FYI Did you know ladies used to use very finely ground corn as powder to remove the shine on their faces. TRIED IT and it works as a nice benefit after doing the grinding by hand in the Florida climate. : )

  • I love my Country Living grain mill
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I love how easy it is to use. It is a little slower than my old mill, but I love the ability to choose from a wider variety of textures. The flour makes wonderful bread!!!

    My wife and I choose the Country Living Mill and are very pleased. A phone call for technical information was very informative and friendly. Actually talked to real people that knew their products well and were enthusiastic to help me! My mill is electrified and turns at 85 RPM. Flour output is excellent, and the mill is quieter than most of my other kitchen appliances. We made the right choice for our fresh milled flour. I would most surely buy this mill again!

  • I love it!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    It's very solidly built. I have no doubt it will outlast me. I bought the motor kit with it and it's very easy to assemble. I can't imagine cranking this all day by hand. The motor kit is a must!!! And makes it fun!!!! Great! Shipping was very fast.

  • Flexibility
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I've just started using my grain mill, but my wife and I love how well made and attractive it is. We're looking forward to the exercise (and using fewer electronic devices in the home), and to exploring the choices of grains and flour types, including locally produced, organic grains. We've been getting delicious boutique breads from a local baker, but at $12.00 or more a loaf, we're anticipating saving money on pastas, breads and other baked goods going forward.
