Family Grain Mill Combos
The Family Grain Mill offers multi-grain milling and exceptional versatility. Its grind is infinitely adjustable, from fine for bread flour, to medium for "Cream Of Wheat" style cereals, or coarse for steel cut or cracked grain. It will also mill some chopped, dry, non-oily herbs and spices. The Family Grain Mill grinds cool to preserve nutrients, and has a large five cup hopper capacity.
The German-built Family Grain Mill is a modular system, giving you drive choices of electric power or available hand crank option. Any combo can be ordered from the drop-down menu at the top of this page, and the combo table (on this page, below) shows which components each combo includes. The hand crank base can also be purchased lower on this page.
In addition to the grain milling head, several other components expand the abilities of the FGM system. The Food Processor slices and shreds vegetables, nuts, fruits and cheese with interchangeable stainless steel drums. The Flaker Mill head flakes soft grains and is popular for fresh homemade oatmeal, making a hearty flake from oat groats (oats with the hulls removed) that's thicker and chewier than store-bought flaked oats. You can see an interior image and more details on the . The Food & Meat Grinder is available with a variety of disk sizes, to grind and mince almost any type of food you can think of.
Use the electric or hand drive, or drive adapters that fit many leading stand mixers.
Processing components include flour mill, grain flaker, food processor and meat/food grinder.
The Grain Mill head grinds soft or 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, soybeans, flax, sesame, coffee, and some herbs and spices. It will also crack grain to any size—you can set the adjustment dial to any consistency from fine flour to meal to cereal grind or cracked grain. It isn't suitable for popcorn, tapioca pearls, or saw palmetto berries. To read more about millable materials, .
The milling head's conical steel burrs work grain with a shearing action to avoid the "crushing friction" that creates the high heat common in many small grain mills—temperatures that can destroy many of the nutrients in your flour. And unlike stone burrs, steel burrs won't gum up or glaze. One cup of fine flour can be produced in just two minutes when hand operated, or a minute and a half with the 150 watt electric motor base. (It takes about 2/3 cup of wheat to make a cup of fine flour.)

Because it doesn't grind with friction, the FGM's hand crank grain mill base turns easier than most hand operated mills. Overall time and effort are four times less than required by most hand mills, and most mills still won't produce flour as fine.
Manufactured in Germany, the Family Grain Mill is built with the durability to provide a lifetime of dependable use. Its body is made of super-tough ABS polymer, and its high-carbon stainless steel burrs are long lasting and easily replaceable.
Family Grain Mill components remove quickly for cleaning. The grain mill head disassembles completely in five seconds, so it's quick and easy to have your mill ready for its next use. And where many mills create a cloud of flour dust to settle everywhere, the FGM operates dust-free.
The motor base is free-standing in use, while the hand base clamps quickly and securely onto a table or counter edge, without marring. The modular design of the Family Grain Mill lets it store compactly. The motor base is rated at 150 watts. It turns at a loaded speed of 120 RPM, and runs quietly.

Whole Grain Nutrition: Harvest the Benefits!
Imagine that for years, your children ate mainly candy. Imagine that you did, too. Imagine an entire nation on a candy diet. Imagine the health consequences.
Natural whole grains contain a myriad of health-essential nutrients, from proteins to vitamins and amino acids. But "white flour" consists only of the starchy endosperm of the wheat kernel. In its natural form the endosperm provides wholesome energy, but it's the least nutrient-rich part of the grain. Removed are the nutrient-packed bran, wheat germ, and wheat germ oil. Then to make it extra white, industrial processors go further, chemically bleaching it, and returning just enough of a few vitamins to stave off beriberi and rickets. They're allowed to call the end product "Enriched Flour" but a truthful label would read "Impoverished Flour." This snow white, denutritionalized substance is a commodity worth billions of dollars annually to its merchandisers because of a commercially useful characteristic: Unlimited shelf life. No matter how long it sits in the mass distribution channel, it can't go bad precisely because there's actually nothing left in it that can go bad. Nutritionally, it's bad when bagged. A few companies have grown enormously rich marketing this pseudo-food on the basis of convenience, ease, and its dazzling white appearance. But a blind eye was turned to the consequences of replacing real whole grain flour with something that looks special, yet is virtually devoid of nutrition. In essence, candy. So widely has this nutritional travesty become accepted that we call it—and think of it as—wheat flour. But to depart further from natural grain flour would scarcely be possible. Then to make matters worse, artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors, appetite stimulants and preservatives are added to many of our foods. "Artificial" tells you those things aren't naturally food. But have you ever wondered what they actually are, then? Did you know some of them are actually petroleum derivatives? What unintended side effects might those complex counterfeit compounds have on us?
The human body is an absolute marvel; scientists have a long way to go to understand a tenth of how we work. But as capable and as resilient as our bodies are, common sense and history teach that we need wholesome, nutritious food to remain healthy and strong. The denatured byproducts being mass marketed today don't provide what we need, because they've been profoundly altered by processes in which real nutrition is considered last, or not at all.
There's a great solution to this problem. By grinding grains in your kitchen and using the whole grain flour while it's fresh, you get the nutrition needed for strength and health. You also get far tastier food, with genuine character—incomparably more satisfying than today's mass marketed pretenders. After transitioning to whole grains, putting out a plate of white styro-bread will elicit comments like "Why are you giving us this... and where's the good stuff?". Even flour labeled as "whole grain" in stores falls far short of what you can easily grind yourself, because unless it's ground while you wait, the essential Vitamin E in true whole grain flour would go rancid in days (meaning that it's probably been removed), and all nutrients begin steadily oxidizing-away from exposure to oxygen as soon as grain is millled. What's in those bags is not whole grain flour if it's been sitting on a shelf for even a few days; that's literally impossible.
Making real food is more than doable, it's downright fun with help from Pleasant Hill Grain! A like the KoMo Classic is the place to start. And to make whole grain bread quickly, easily and with consistently wonderful results, nothing beats a quality that's capable of mixing and kneading bread that's ready to pop in the oven — quickly and without hand kneading. These machines make it easy to turn the corner to a far better and more enjoyable way of eating!
