David Hinson (1955-2010) started Old School Mill, Inc. in the early 1990’s with an interest in foods, “prepared in the ways passed down from ‘the old school’.” This quest for authenticity in producing the foods led David to construct a molasses mill later with the notion that the molasses had been produced exactly as it would have been produced by his ancestors.
David’s interest in antique foods led him to purchase and make operational an antique grist mill. Drawing on the expertise of old-time millers, David learned the fine art of stone grinding grains into wonderfully pure meals, flours, and grits. Since those first products were made we have developed a line of foods and mixes that bring back all the rich goodness and flavor of centuries ago.
Today, David’s wife Robin, along with son Parker and wife Makayla, along with valued friends, continue to operate the business with utmost care and the attention to the detail that David insisted upon. We hope you will enjoy your visit to our website. Our goal is that you will find our products unique and top quality. We always appreciate your business!
