This Is A Historical Mill. “Quoted” New Hope Mills started in Moravia, NY as a flour mill servicing the local farming community in 1823. Nearly 200 years later the business is still alive. Doug Weed, the 3rd generation Owner and CEO fondly recalls days in his youth, mixing and packing flour at the location everyone in the New Hope Mills’ family calls, ‘The Old Mill.’ Working alongside his Father and Grandfather, Doug and his siblings and cousins learned the value of hard work and the tools and trade of milling, mixing, and packing what has become Central NY’s favorite pancake mix! In 2005, the mill and the saw mill upstream were both added to the New York State and National Register of Historical places.
