Grain Mill Wagon Experience: I am so honored to have taken part in the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge. I have been using this fantastic resource for over a year now and it's my go to recipe guide for using my WonderMill. Being a part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge taught me that I truly can convert all of my old recipes into new ones using freshly milled wheat (and some of the recipes don't even change). Using the mill is simple and so much fun for the whole family! It's healthier for my family and provides great tasting food. The WonderMill is the only mill I recommend to families who are serious about milling their own wheat and I'm thankful that I've been part of this challenge.
