The Mill

at long last we’ve landed on a name for the new cafe bakery. we’ve gone through a million different iterations, and a exchanged a million text messages (in many of which i was [inaccurately] positive that i’d struck gold)…

are you ready? you wanna know what it is? are you sure???

The Mill.

its awesome, right?? i know! we are pumped.

(logical next question) hmmm, why in the heck are you calling it The Mill? it sounds real good, but why??


this is what the mill will look like:

and these are the dudes in Austria that are going to make it:

i think we’re gonna get along realll nice.

i cannot overstate how totally effing excited i am about this.

we’ll use said mill to grind our grains and we’ll use said grains to make bread. and scones. and coffee cakes. and cookies. and whatever the hell else we feel like.

so there. are you pumped? i hope so, cuz i’m coming for you.

❤ josey

p.s. check out the first slug of the season! found this lil beauty on a glorious bike camp trip adventure that i took last weekend down to half moon bay. it’s beautiful, get out!!!

I would love to help out and build some experience!
