Owner description: Specialties Our store is the place to shop for all things New Hope Mills! We specialize in pancake & baking mixes. But we offer so much more! You will find many items in our store - organic, gluten free mixes, baking supplies, snacks, gift items, locally made items and more. Our cafe serves up fresh pancakes (try any variety NHM pancake or our featured limited edition flavor available in the cafe only!), eggs, sausage, and a variety of baked goods. Try our amazing espresso drinks made with fresh, locally roasted coffee beans. We also offer several flavors of 100% fruit smoothies. So much to see and taste! Come on over! History Established in 1823. New Hope Mills has a rich history. Most importantly, we have stood for "Quality Since 1823". Quality in service and products has set our company apart from the very beginning. The Mill was built in 1823 by Judge Charles Kellogg for local farmers to have their flour ground. It wasn't until the 1970's that a store was started, as a way to service those who wanted to purchase flour and flour-related products. New Hope Mills gradually grew into a traveler's destination, and the store offerings increased. Visitors to the old mill continually comment on how they love the nostalgia of the Mill and the covered bridge. It all bears witness of the "old days". Currently, the Mill is owned and operated by the Weed family. Leland Weed became the sole owner in 1953, then later passed it on to his sons. It has now moved to the 3rd generation in the Weed family. We thank you for supporting a local family business and helping to sustain a piece of the past.

We have been visiting New Hope Mills for probably 20 years starting when they were running the old mill in New Hope just west of Skaneateles Lake. We visited the old mill countless times with our children and grandchildren. Their products are awesome, and we always stock up on them for the Fall and Winter. Thanks for providing a quality product that we can count on.

We travel into the area every year around Christmas and we stay in Skaneateles before or after the holiday. We make it a point to visit here a few days before Christmas to get an assortment of "factory direct" New Hope Mill pancake mixes and cake mixes for ourselves as well as to give for gifts. The assortment of baking related items in this store is amazing and we usually browse around the store for a good half hour when we visit as there are so many different and unique items to see in the store.
