The Colvin Run Mill Store is open Thursday – Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. All grain and teas can now be purchased in the store during those hours.

We offer White and Yellow Grits, White and Yellow Cornmeal, Soft and Hard Wheat Flour and Buckwheat. All grains are ground on site at the Historic Mill.

All grain comes in 2-lb bags for $7.97.

We also offer local tea blends from the Great Falls Tea Garden for $10/bag.

Along with these supplies, our historic early 20th century store sells toys, “penny” candy, jewelry, mugs and many other interesting finds. Visiting the store is an adventure in itself. See more information on our Colvin Run Mill General Store webpage.
