About Us

Ray and Helen Juhl of Middle River, Minnesota, founded Natural Way Mills in 1976. They fulfilled their dream of providing an alternative to the 20th century diet of additive-laden, processed foods. Natural Way Mills currently processes and markets ORGANIC, NON-GMO whole grains, flours, and cereals. They also do specialty milling. The Juhls purchased a large grain farm near the Red River Valley of the North in 1954. Working with Jack Zachary, an experienced miller of many years from St. Paul, MN, the present mill was built and uses a unique process not used in any other mills. This secret system does the following two things: (1) keeps all the original nutrients, (2) produces a dryer product that extends the shelf life without adding preservatives.

The demand for Natural Way Mills products continues to grow, thanks to their excellent quality. Currently the products are being distributed across the entire United State, as well as several countries overseas.

The Juhls believe completely in their naturally grown and produced products, especially so in face of the present growing awareness of chemical residues in food and more recently the genetically modified organisms (GMO) affecting grains and the harmful effects they may have on the human body. They are dedicated to providing foods that can provide a way to better health and life in the new millennium. This dedication has been justified by the consumer enthusiasm for Natural Way Mills products.
