According to MPBN, a new grist mill is holding their grand opening this weekend in Skowhegan. The mill is a part of the infrastructure needed for Maine to develop greater self sufficiency in where its food comes from.
Turning a jail into a grist mill made perfect sense to Lambke, who had been looking for a way to contribute to the community transformation and restore a lost art to central Maine. “New England was once a major producer of grains and we wanted to revive that here in Maine,” she says. “There were bakers that were eager for local grains and farmers willing to grow it.”
