More information.

Colvin Run Mill is accepting phone orders for grain products produced at the mill. White or yellow cornmeal, white or yellow grits, and wheat flour are available for purchase and pick up at the mill. Tea blends created by Laurie Bell of the Great Falls Tea Garden are also available.

Call the main office for product availability and to place your order between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.  A staff member will coordinate pick up with you at the time of your order, which in most cases will not be the same day. Requests placed after business hours may not be fulfilled on the following day. Thank you for your understanding.

All grain products are $7.97, plus tax. Since we do not produce grain on a commercial scale, customer purchases are limited to three bags of each product while supplies last. Tea blends are $10 per bag plus tax while supplies last.
We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
