about us

Deep Roots Milling was started by Charlie Wade in 2017.  Charlie comes from a long line of millers.  He is the 6th generation in his family to take up the trade.  Charlie's family owned and operated Wades Mill in Raphine, VA from 1882 to the early 1990's.  Continuing the family trade has long been a dream of Charlie's and he and his wife and daughter are excited to embark on this next journey in the lives.  


Just like his great great grandfather, Charlie uses stone mills to grind his flour.  The cool action of the stones help to preserve the whole grain nutrients and flavor.  Deep Roots Milling is committed to working with local growers to help support and sustain the local food economy and takes every step possible to to source grains from growers in Virginia.


Products and Services


We currently are producing cornmeal and grits from several heirloom varieties of open pollinated corn, all purpose and bread flours of varying levels of extraction, and buckwheat flour.  As we continue to grow we will expand our offerings to include more varieties of wheat, mixes, and nut flours.

We also are interested in helping small growers bring their products to market by offering small batch custom milling services.
