WHEAT MILLING IN CALIFORNIA

California remains as the largest wheat milling state by capacity. Our domestic market in California is significant and through key partnership, we can help our growers sell more California wheat (conventional and organic) to these mills.

The mills in California combined have a daily capacity of 124,302 cwts or 12,430,200 lbs/day. The mills listed below are strategically located to mill wheat for specific customers and products.

Some of our wheat growers, produce certified sustainable wheat, certified through the Food Alliance (https://foodalliance.org/).  We have grain handling and cleaning facilities that can help processing the wheat and deliver it to the mills which comply with similar guidelines. The mills work with many different bakeries, tortillas, and pasta manufacturers (just to mention a few). List of mills and their daily capacity by city:
