Shawnee Mills Products

I’m kind of embarrassed to say this.  I live in Oklahoma and always thought that Shawnee Mills was in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

Not so.  Actually, the company has 7 facilities located …well…where the wheat grows in Oklahoma, in Arnett, Gage, Minco, Kingfisher, Okarche and Cashion.

Created in 1906 by J. Loyd Ford they are still operating under the leadership of the third generation of Ford family owners.

The capability to process several different kinds of wheat, corn and flour mixtures make them one of the leaders in baking products in the country. They also manufacture cattle feed and a by product of pet food.  In fact, their animal feed operation is one of the up and coming  and fastest growing plants in the southwest.

Some of their products include a variety of Corn Meal mixes, flours, muffin mixes and pancake and waffle mixes.  They also produce gravy  and pizza dough mixes.

I like to use their flour.  I like to support my local producers.  Some of the things I like to make with their flour – just click on the picture to see how it’s made…

Blueberry Crumble Bread. 

Triple Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Bars.

Raspberry Buttermilk Cake

Ahhhh….Sticky Toffee Pudding.

My favorites – Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese-N-Spice Frosting.

Next time you’re in the shopping aisle looking for four, why not support Shawnee Mills? 

It’s Oklahoma Made.

    Just found your blog and will visit often. I thought Shawnee Mills was in Shawnee, too. At least, that’s what I’ve been driving by for years. The Fords are a wonderful family here — great community members and volunteers. Maybe you meant that it’s in Shawnee plus the other six locations. We’re proud of Shawnee Mills and their products!
