The Grain Mill

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe (Mother and Kids) are a small family project, located in the town of Knysna. Our main source of income is the artisan manufacture of wholesome, organic grain products. In 2014 we decided to leave our home country (Germany) and migrate to South Africa with nothing but an Austrian Mill and a pasta machine. By now we slowly start to be a part of our new home. Living here gives you more freedom, but also greater responsibilities. We never get bored, every day brings new exciting projects, but also new challenges, whether it´s fixing the loo or milking the goats (for the first time).
    Although we learned to do a lot of things, there are often times where we need some help.
    We are all multitaskers, in other words, `we do everything`.
    If don't get tired of work and "adventure", this is the right place for you.
