Over the years, many Waldorf Kindergarten teachers have bought our Farina Grain Mill to grind grains for their baking lessons. 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, taste of freshly ground whole grain flour, with all the important minerals, fiber, and trace elements.

PRODUCT CARE: 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 not 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!
The FARINA is a medium size hand mill using real Naxos Basalt mill stones, and will grind a wide variety of cereal grains. Features include a unique solid timber housing from Larchwood (finished with natural beeswax balm), a strong handle with spinning timber grip on a single ball race and heavy duty table-clamp. The ergonomic design is simple and compact, suitable for everyday use, travel or survival. An excellent choice for children to operate easily too.
Adjustment is simply made via the front timber hex knob, allowing for fine-to-coarse settings, providing a flexible range of output grades... a proven design of over 25 years. Anything from slightly cracked grains, coarse garnishes through to fine flour for pastries and breads can be produced.
