Local Business We Love: Bob's Red Mill
Located in Milwaukie, Oregon not too far from us here in Woodstock, Bob's Red Mill is one of the nation's leading miller of healthy whole grain foods. Bob's Red Mill was founded in 1978 by Bob Moore, in a historic flour mill near Oregon City.
From the company website,
"Bob and his wife Charlee searched America for special stones used in century-old mills that would become the company's foundation for milling simple, wholesome, whole-grain foods. With continuous growth and perseverance, they overcame a devastating fire in 1988 and then, at nearly 60 years of age, Bob rebuilt his company in Milwaukie, Oregon using the stones saved from the fire."
Bob's Red Mill now operates both a working mill and a new Whole Grain Visitors Center and Store complete with a full service restaurant. Tours are offered of the mill and the restaurant is open 6 days a week. Speaking from personal experience, the pancakes are delicious!
