The ability to eat “locally” is something that people in 1872 took for granted. We have come a long way from our food being “local”. With seafood from China, fruits, and nuts from Mexico and Costa Rica and beef from Canada and New Zealand, we have become detached from our food supply. However, with the resurgence of a desire to eat locally our culture is shifting. The Butte Creek Mill has been part of the “locally-sourced movement” since it opened for business in 1872. The Mill continues to buy the bulk of its wheat from Eastern Oregon and is committed to sustainability and creating products that enhance the health of its consumers.
