For Sale

Posted: May 9, 2017 | Location: Grass Valley, California
I am wanting to retire from the flour milling business that I established 10 years ago. I have stable wholesale accounts with local stores, restaurants, and distributors. There are great opportunities for expansion for a younger person with initiative. The business currently requires about six days a month work and nets about half a family farm income so it would be a great fit with a farming operation. There is a strong local farm community in the area. Business includes accounts, milling and sifting equipment, grain inventory, and the cargo container housing it, if desired.
