It is getting harder and harder to find corn for the mill, especially the older heirloom varieties. Two older gentlemen that have come to the mill for years passed away this fall and I have lost them as suppliers. Most of the suppliers for the mill are now in their mid 70's or older. I have only 4 people that I buy corn from that are younger than 50. One is a teenage boy that I have convinced to grow Bloody Butcher for me. I am looking for several hundred pounds of it as well as a source for about 10 tons of Keener corn. The market is there, I just cannot find the farmers to grow for me.
We will be sharpening the stones in the next couple of weeks.
