Newsy Item

At the beginning of this episode, I mentioned one newsy item, and that is that I’ll be in Arizona in late March and I’m planning a gathering with GNOWFGLINS friends on Sunday, March 24, 2013. The details (such as they are) are RIGHT HERE. I look forward to meeting you there!

In this episode, Vickilynn and I covered a lot of ground. Here are the questions I asked:

  • Why did you begin milling your own grains? (great story here!)
  • Why should everyone consider milling their own grains?
  • What types of grains mills are on the market?
  • What are the pros and cons of each type of grain mill?
  • What non-electric mills would you recommend?
  • What kind of questions should someone ask themselves in order to know what kind of mill to buy? (This is the best part of the whole episode!)
  • What’s your approach when reviewing grain mills?
  • What resources would you recommend for listeners looking into grain mills and fresh milled grains?

See what I mean? Tons of information. Good, good stuff.
