Enjoy demonstrations and handcrafted work by local artisans and craftspeople and find unique gifts. Explore Wade’s Mill’s three floors of historic milling equipment and museum displays.  Our 100% natural flours, grits, cornmeals and mixes will be available in the Mill Shop along with a curated selection of local food products and gifts.
