My Visit with Bob Moore from Bob’s Red Mill

This summer I took a special trip to Milwaukie, Oregon where I met a legend in the natural food industry: Bob Moore, owner and creator of Bob’s Red Mill. Bob has built this company with sales that now exceed $75 million a year in whole-grain flours and cereals.

What truly makes Bob’s products remarkable is that the grains are stone milled, or ground. Stone grinding creates rough edges that give character and preserves the wholesomeness without stripping it apart and diminishing the true flavor of the grains. “Whole grains are a better bet,” says Bob. “There is an art to stone grinding them. I design and make my own stone mills so I know the grains will be milled the best way.”
