Country Living Grain Mill
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.
“I love how sturdy this product is. It feels like it will last not only a lifetime, but generations.”

By Mark & Susan G. in PA on 6/29/2016 - Verified BuyerThe 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.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Danny S., MO on 9/13/2016 - Verified BuyerLove this grain mill! We ordered the large auger to mill corn. The cornmeal this bad boy cranks out is silky and smooth!4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Pat H. in MI on 2/9/2016 - Verified BuyerThis 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.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Patricia J. in FL on 6/15/2015 - Verified BuyerEverything 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. : )4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Kathy W. in ID on 4/13/2016 - Verified BuyerVery 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!3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Connie W. in UT on 4/21/2016 - Verified BuyerI 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!!!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Rick R. in WA on 1/12/2016 - Verified BuyerMy 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!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Linda M M. in ME on 8/1/2015 - Verified BuyerIt takes little effort to grind corn in this. Even the 3 year old that I babysit enjoys grinding our corn!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Gary S. in SD on 2/17/2015 - Verified BuyerIt'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.7 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
