Balmoral Grist Mill

Discover this wonderful three-storey grist mill tucked away in wooded gorge on Matheson's Brook near Tatamagouche. Wheat, oats, and buckwheat are ground and sifted just as they have been since Alexander McKay opened the mill in 1874. Feel the mill in action and hear the whir of wooden gear as shafts and pulleys turn the mill's Scottish granite millstones. Sample the nutty flavour of oats toasted and turned on the cast-iron floor of the kiln, heated by the maple fire.
