Low-Impact Living: Grain Silos, Flour Mills, Sprouting Pots, and More from Hawos of Germany

To be filed under: something we’d like to own for our idyllic, bread-baking, seed-sprouting, whole-grain life in the future. In truth, none of us at Remodelista has ever ground our own flour, but we have friends who swear by the benefits (better flavor, far more nutritious). And we were so delighted by the look of these wooden home mills, grain silos, and companion accessories made by Hawos of Germany that we’re ready to start—or, at least, to contemplate welcoming these accessories into our tiny kitchens.
