About Us / Westwind Milling Co., LLC History: In 2001, Lee and Linda Purdy purchased an 1836 Flour Mill located in the suburban community of Linden, Michigan, southwest of Flint. Lee was raised on the 160 acre farm they lived on, and, recently married with lots of energy and ambition, they decided to get into the milling business to find alternative markets for the grain they raised. Both of them were members of Organic Growers of Michigan, and believed in sustainable living practices. So, they named the old Mill Westwind Milling Co. in honor of Lee's farm, Westwind Farm, and got the place certified organic. They've "been through the mill" in tough economic times, but have weathered the storm, as Westwind Milling Co., LLC enters its 15th year in business.
Westwind's main focus is wholesale sales of our stone ground flours milled from Michigan grown, certified organic grains. We mill bread, pastry, and all purpose wheat flours, spelt, rye, and barley. In our gluten free mill, we grind rice, sorghum, garbanzo, and buckwheat flours, along with corn meal. We have a wide variety of baking mixes, as well, in both traditional flours and gluten free. Westwind also has a retail store, open from 10-6 Tuesday -Saturday, where we sell our flours retail, along with other locally produced, sustainably raised foods.
