I salute McEwen & Sons for grains that I believe to be unmatched in their quality and consistency.
The McEwens reinvented grits, which was a special mission in the South, because like a lot of Southern food, the life had been processed out of them.

McEwen & Sons True Grits
In the small town of Wilsonville, Alabama, Frank McEwen moves amidst a fine cloud of grits dust. For the last 10 years, he has stone-ground organic white, yellow, and blue corn. Frank's mill sits just a few miles from 270 acres of land his family has farmed since the 19th Century. At one time, the farm was industrial-focused on 10,000 laying hens and commercial hatching eggs, which were sold to various industrial enterprises, including Purina, Marshall Durbin and Goldkist. These days, however, Frank and his teenage sons are transforming it into a small sustainable farm.

Grits, you say? Here in Pittsburgh, where when you say "Birmingham" you mean the historic South Side on the Monongahela River, not a place in Alabama? Try them; you may start saying "y'all" instead of "yinz."
