The Friday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, is America's unofficial shopping holiday, but it's mostly the big box stores who benefit from Black Friday's boost to the economy. Patronizing small and family-owned businesses as much as possible during the holidays—and year-round, can make a big difference for small business owners. Small Business Saturday is a great time to intentionally shop for goods and services that help the local and independently-owned businesses who are a vital part of our country.

Local and Family-Owned since 1755

Operating at the original site of the 1755 water mill built by Pennsylvania Quaker and settler Thomas Lindley, ninth and tenth-generation Lindleys are still inspired today to continue the tradition of milling organic flour. Like our ancestors who worked at the mill more than 260 years ago, we believe sustainable, local food circles are the safest and most stable food sources and we support them as often as possible. We strive to maintain close connections with the farmers who grow our wheat and the bakers who feed our neighbors. No matter where you live, supporting companies who have strong connections to organic agriculture and long term relationships with their suppliers is good for both our businesses and our food systems. You can read more about how Lindley Mills accomplishes this in our history and values.

On Small Business Saturday (November 26th) we invite you to check out our online store and help us continue to carry on the legacy of milling high-quality organic flour that our ancestors started back in 1755. Lindley Mills’ flour, grits, and muffin mix make wonderful gifts for the bakers in your life, and are a nutritious and satisfying option for your holiday table.
