  • We always enjoy shopping around at Nora Mill. Love the biscuit mix, and they have awesome grits! Fun place for everyone.  more »
  • You walk back in time when you enter this old mill with plank floors and huge old stones to grind the corn. Free samples of hot grits and cornbread made at the mill. Loved going out on back porch and ...  more »
  • This mill is still in use to produce cornmeal and corn products. We met a precious guy named Tommy Martin (which my husband had met earlier at Betty's grocery store~how cool is that?) that works there...  more »

  • Great place to shop like in the past. Their falls in the back porch is a big plus. My kids loved it.
  • Fond childhood memories of this place. Now, as an adult, I stop in now and again and soak up this place. Reminds you of a time long gone, old fashioned, friendly. I love that you're able to sample the grits and porridge. The selection of grains, jams and jellies, candy, etc is one of a kind and plentiful. Also, be sure to bring a quarter with you and step out on the back deck. You'll thank me later.
  • A step back in time. The Miller, Mr. Martin takes his time to explain all the details of the Mills operation. He loves it, he lives it. Having your nose to the grind stone gives meaning to the origin of the term. Stocked with many different types of grain products as if you were back in the 1800s. Most people see the exterior and drive-by never knowing what they just missed. Young adults owe it to themselves to see how things are done, The way it was in the past while these Mills still stand.
  • A favorite stop every year! Christmas isn’t Christmas without their grits ❤️
  • I thought this place was great, and I loved the grits and porridge mix I bought on my first visit. However, after sitting in my pantry for two months one of my bags of porridge became infested with some sort of bug. I thought it may have been my fault, even though none of my other dry goods had bugs in them. I made a second visit and restocked my grits and porridge, and after several months the same thing happened again, this time to my grits! This time I had placed the grits bag in an airtight ziplock bag which has no holes in it, so the bug eggs had to be in the cloth bag or the grits themselves. None of my other dry goods have bugs, and I have moved since the first purchase I made so it is not the location. I give them 2 stars for maintaining a working grist mill and stocking a lot of local goods, but don't buy any dry goods from them you plan on storing in your pantry unless you want to be disappointed later.
