The NutriMill Family of grain mills offers everyone a fast easy and affordable way to mill your own grain and legumes into fresh nutritious flour. Pre-ground flour often pales in nutrition with essential oils removed to protect from rancidity and then often has artificial additives and preservatives inserted to imitate desired manufacturers characteristics.

Membership is free and we start every new account with a signing bonus of 2500 points. Points earned are kept in the account forever unless there is no activity in the account for one year; then the account reverts to zero.
We will absolutely not call you or give this information to any other party for any reason whatsoever. (In the event, you do not wish us to use your phone number, the assigned 10 digit number is used but you will then need to have the card so it can be scanned to award points.) Effective Dec. 1, 2015, with each regular grocery purchase, the clerk will scan your membership card and points will be added to your account. A point is earned for every penny of purchase.
So a $10 purchase is worth 1000 points. As points accumulate, you earn higher levels of rank as designated by the color of belt on your card. Everyone starts with a white belt and can move up in rank to eventually be at the highest rank of black belt where the reward is greatest.
At each level, gift certificates are awarded to use as cash dollars for future purchases. Phone numbers are used only for the purpose of awarding points to your account.
