Bob's Red Mill Tour

January 16, 2017
1:00PM - 4:00PM

1pm Lunch: Whole Grain Store and Restaurant, 5000 SE International Way, Milwaukie, OR 97222

2:30 -4pm Tour: Headquarters Mill, 13521 SE Pheasant Court, Milwaukie, OR 97222 (on the corner of Highway 224 and Pheasant Ct.)

Bob’s Red Mill is a uniquely Oregon success story. Bob and Charlee Moore began 38 years ago in Milwaukie with one refurbished antique stone flour mill and a passion to produce simple, healthy whole grain food products. Today their company is recognized as a leader in the natural foods industry and exports American grown grain products all over the world. A tour of the Mill is a lively hour with narration, stories and cooking tips from our knowledgeable ‘grain guides.’ You can expect to see historical milling equipment on display, modern factory production lines in action, touch buckets of every kind of grain imaginable, and hear the story about the fire that almost stopped Bob! This is a window tour so no need to wear special clothing or shoes.

Prior to your free Mill tour we will meet at the Whole Grain Store and Restaurant for a delicious and nutritious lunch and an opportunity to do a little shopping at a very unusual store.

The cost is free for members and $5 for non-members.
