farina grain mill

2 Reviews


Over the years, many Waldorf Kindergarten teachers have bought our Farina Grain Mill to grind grains for their baking lessons. It's no toy; it works like magic to finely or coarsely grind wheat or other grains into flour. Children love to turn the crank and everyone will enjoy the aroma and taste of freshly ground whole grain flour, with all the important minerals, fiber and trace elements.
Item#: 1078
Age: 3+ years old
Size: 11.5" tall, 11" wide at top (including handle)
Made In: Germany
Material: The mill is made of larch wood. The heart of the mill is a sturdy millstone.
Our grain mill is designed primarily to mill grains such as wheat, rice and rye into flour. Dried corn is too hard for the mill and legumes are also not recommended. Nuts or anything oily should not be put through the mill as there is no way to clean the stones thoroughly.

The first time you use the mill it is important to discard the first 1/2 cup of grain you mill as it may contain tiny stones from the milling stones. After this, your grain mill should serve you well for many years!

Ties it all together

We had one of these at the local Waldorf school, and I was totally amazed, along with the children, how it transformed wheat berries into such fine, quality flour. What a great way to connect children with their food. It's costly, but this is great for avid bakers or a homeschool/childcare.

Easy to use, makes very nice flour

After a long time of admiring this mill, we finally bought it. I really like its simplicity. It is easy to clamp to a table and easy to adjust. We've made fine flour, coarser flour and even tried our making our own cream of wheat. You don't want it too coarse for that, we determined. The finer flour makes very nice bread, as good as the store-bought whole wheat pastry flour. It does take effort to use, but I have three willing helpers who anxious to have their turns.
