Logan Turnpike Mill's old-fashioned speckled Old-Fashioned Speckled White Grits are coarse ground from Georgia grown corn. Because most of the natural germ and bran are preserved in the stone-grinding process, nutrition and flavor are enhanced. Their stone grinding process utilizes the whole grain, nothing is removed; they also grind at a much lower temperature than the high-speed roller mills used today in commercial milling. Keeping the grains cool does not destroy the heat sensitive nutrients and makes for a much more flavorful and healthy product.
George and Cecilia Holland purchased the mill in 1986 from George and Becky Rogers. They carried on the Roger's tradition going around to country fairs demonstrating corn grinding. At Logan Turnpike Mill they have an antique Williams grist mill circa 1916 and a 1926 Fairbanks Morse hit-n-miss engine mounted on a buckboard wagon with iron wheels. People were delighted that freshly ground grains could taste so good and old engines could be so loud.
Through the years we have been contracting with local farmers to grow our corn. The hot summer here in Georgia really sets the flavor. Treat your family to the taste of old-fashioned slow cooked goodness. Please store in the refrigerator or freezer. No preservatives are added.
NOTE: Logan Turnpike Mill also grinds wheat, using different equipment than for the corn grinding. They do mix wheat flours in another part of the factory, so there could be wheat in the air.
