Julian Milling Company
I'm doing a lot of location scouting now, which is good because it means I have work coming up. Julian Milling Company is an old feed mill south of Greensboro still in operation. They still use the old mill machinery to grind feed and clean seed for local farmers. Old mills fascinate me; must be in my blood. My grandfather and his father and grandfather were all millers. They ran grist (or flour) mills, but they are very similar to feed mills. Some of my fondest memories are of going to the mill with Grandpa to grind our feed. We actually used this mill and I still buy hay and farm supplies from them.
