I know many of you aren’t anywhere near Portland, Oregon, but if you should find yourself in our neck of the woods this summer (or anytime really), we’d love to give you a tour of our mill. We’re technically in Milwaukie, Oregon, which is a darling little town about 15 minutes south of Portland. (Click here for directions.)
Our mill is open for public tours Monday through Friday starting at 10 am. Tours typically last about 90 minutes and consist of a video, hands-on grain display, old mill equipment (including our first set of mill stones) and a window tour that shows you how our products are milled and packaged. You almost always get to see Bob and sometimes he will even play you a piano ditty on one of his two mill pianos (yes, we have TWO pianos in our mill). It is a great tour for kids and adults alike, and our amazing tour guide, Christie, will leave you all jazzed up about whole grains. She probably knows more fun facts about our company than even Bob himself!
We recently opened our cute little The Mill Store (seen above) that sells great memorabilia and other Bob’s Red Mill must-haves in case you need a souvenir to take home with you. If you have time, after the tour, we recommend a visit to our Whole Grain Store for lunch. The store serves breakfast and lunch until 3 pm and carries our full line of products (many available in bulk), as well as other special regional items.
Got a group of 10 or more? Call Christie at 971-212-1180 to let her know your group is coming and/or schedule a special tour.
Just can’t make it to a tour, but would like to see a little behind-the-scenes? Check out this video of our manufacturing facility and see what all the fuss is about!
We hope to see you soon!
