Camas Country Mill is an artisan stone grist mill located in Eugene, Oregon, specializing in 100% whole grain products. We are the natural extension of the Hunton family’s third-generation farm, deeply rooted in the Southern Willamette Valley land and community for over fifty years.
Stop by our mill, a farmer’s market, or explore our website to learn about our commitment to re-localizing grain production and stimulating a vibrant, healthy, and sustainable regional economy. Bakers, chefs, brewers, and distillers throughout the region use Camas Country Mill ingredients in their incredible local products, and you can also find us on store shelves and bulk bins throughout the Willamette Valley and Oregon.
Join our Schoolhouse Project this fall to help bring an iconic schoolhouse back to life on our farm! The Lower Fern Ridge Schoolhouse is one-room country school built before 1890; we hope to restore it as a farm to school center for tours, a community space, and a new retail storefront. As our community connections continue to grow throughout our foodshed, we receive more requests for tours of the mill and the farm, and more interest from schools, individuals, and community groups who want to re-connect with the growing and processing of whole grains and staple foods. The restoration of this schoolhouse will give us an opportunity to open up our farm to the community as a social and education space, and will preserve the vanishing history of our rural landscape. This schoolhouse is near and dear to us and to and our neighbors; we can’t wait to share it with the community and visitors from all over. Click the menu above to learn more and join us in preserving living history.
