You will watch the action of a working mill as seen through our viewing windows. Questions are welcome during a discussion about the healthful benefits of our wide variety of grain products. Everyone leaves with a free sample. Tours generally last about 1 1/2 hours. Following the tour our visitors are invited to travel one mile to our Whole Grain Store and Cafe for lunch and shopping.

Interesting tour showing how flours are milled, a bit of information about Bobs history and how he came to be world renown. Short but good

When you go to a tour, you expect some degree of infomercial and this tour did a reasonable job promoting Bob's Red Mill products. I thought the information about the evolution of milling techniques and continual improvement of packaging was very interesting (stand up, re-closeable bags are on their way).The tour guide did a great job although, at times, the rolling speaker apparatus didn't keep up with the location of the cordless microphone. Upon leaving, we got some free samples and coupons. Nice to see an employee-owned company, with loyal and enthusiastic employees. Now, let's see if they can start putting country of origin labels (C.O.O.L.) labels on their products so we can support North American farmers.

The tour at Bob's Red Mill Factory was one of the highlights of my recent Portland visit. It's slightly low key (small group), but provided a warm-hearted look at the business, the history and the people. Seeing the milling equipment and process up close was a great learning experience. The story of the recovery after the 1988 arson fire was touching. Our tour guides were welcoming and friendly. As a food blogger, I gained so much insight into the health benefits of whole grains and the broadening product choices. After the tour, we stopped at the Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Store (a few minutes down the road) to take photos and browse the store.

This tour is a must if you are a Bob's Red Mill fan. Our tour guide Daphne Parker was excellent in showing us how the Mill works and the History of the Company. This tour was great because it really helped me understand all of the hard work and excellence that goes into making Bob's Red Mill products. If you are fan go tour and get Daphne as your guide you will be happy you did.

A while ago we visited the Mill with our work group from Boeing! This tour was incredible. Very well organized, extremely informative, and the tour guide Daphne Parker orchestrated a captivating tour that spanned all ages. Even the kiddos running around with us were enthralled in her presentation. I particularly enjoyed the hands on portion where the difference in the grains were explained. It was great to see how our fellow manufacturers are using lean principles in their own environment.
