Old Mill Of Guilford Yellow Grits
Product SKU # 442-1361
Founded in 1767 on Beaver Creek in North Carolina, Old Mill of Guilford began to grind grain for early settlers. During the mill's long history since, many interesting events have taken place including one on February 10, 1781. On that day, during the Revolutionary War, British troops under General Cornwallis marched past the mill in pursuit of General Greene who was encamped at Guilford Courthouse. Legend has it that British troops seized the mill to grind grain for the soldiers prior to the Battle of Guilford Courthouse on March 15, 1781. The mill has been in almost continuous operation ever since and today it still produces all-natural and stone-ground whole grain foods.
