A Lot Has Changed In 80 Years. Some Things Didn’t Need To.
In 1935, G.D. Drum put his life savings on the line in exchange for Maiden Flour Mill, located in Newton, North Carolina. Working with two employees, Mr. Drum began a tradition of small-batch milling with integrity that’s not only survived for more than eight decades ‒ it’s thrived. Although Mr. Drum’s original Maiden Flour Mill has evolved into today’s Renwood Mills, the DNA of our mill remains very much the same. While other outfits churn out “mega-batches” in order to maximize efficiency and profit, we still mill using those same time-honored practices to deliver the integrity and consistency of our products. We still use locally sourced grains from our neighboring farmers. And we still rely on time-tested milling practices. After all of these years, not a whole lot has changed at our mill, which explains why we still produce the highest quality baking products in the South.
