Day 22 of my 30 Days of Ag “All Things Minnesota Agriculture” is Whole Grain Milling. I picked this company because they grow organic crops that are used in a mill and I love what they produce, namely the tortilla chips and pancake mix. I am will be very honest. Organic food is not something I buy for my family. But I will buy food items with Whole Grain Milling label. Why? I buy it because it’s a Minnesota business (the family lives near where I live) and I love the taste! They make the BEST tortilla chips! I also buy their whole grain pancake mix. As the holiday season approaches, my kitchen will have a supply of the tortilla chips along with my homemade salsa. So good!
Whole Grain Milling is from Welcome, MN and owned by Doug and Lin Hilgendorf. They are a certified organic farm.
