The Hoffman Mill at 105 N. Factory Street in Enterprise, KS was re-established in 2016 with a new structure built adjacent to the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad.  The intent is to make flour products like our ancestors did when the original Hoffman Mill was operating near this site back in the 1800’s.  Our grinding stones are either an original or one recently reproduced.  


All wheat products are ground from turkey red heritage grain that was originally brought to United States by Mennonite immigrants in 1870.  Corn products are non GMO.  Whole wheat flour is 100% of the berry made into flour.  Bolted flour will be like that found in the late 1800’s that has some of the bran removed and is not as fine as general purpose flour.

The flour mill is open on Saturdays from 10am until 3pm and also on days that the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad operates trains from Abilene to Enterprise.  Train passengers are invited to visit the flour mill during the layover in Enterprise to explore the mill, see how it operates, and perhaps make some purchases of this unique product to take home with them.  Flour produced in the mill can also be ordered by phone and shipped to your home.

The primary cleaners in our current facility are 80 to 100 years old.  The final cleaners were recently manufactured.  The bolter (sifter) is also an original that was manufactured in 1890.  All spouting, elevator legs, and storage bins are made of wood.  A small sifter is used to separate corn meal and grits.
