It’s been a while since I’ve been on this forum, got really busy.

I did a video back during the pandemic shut down about Grain maker 99 versus country living grain mill. If you’re wanting a manual grain mill that can later be motorized, this would be a great video to watch!

Since that time, I have bought the grain maker 99 and must say I absolutely love it! It can be a little daunting trying to mill certain things like dry corn and beans when you use the large auger. The motor for the grain maker 99 is more expensive than the mill itself!  But in the video near the end I show where you could probably buy the country living grain mill motor kit for the grain maker 99! That’s at half the price.

It really is a thing of preference. What your paying for the grain maker  seems more expensive than the country living grain mill, but, if you’re wanting to make nut butters and do other things the country living grain mill is going to be about the same price if not a little bit more expensive with all the accessories! Also the grain  maker can switch between making peanut butter and grains much more easy than the country living green mill . Check out the video!

I have no experience at all with the Country Living Mill - but I will back up your opinion on the Grain Maker 99.

A very strong and well built unit.  I purchased the bicycle attachment and use it to mill corn, barley and wheat for homemade chicken feed.  It will probably take a while to justify the cost of the mill for this use though... It was otherwise just sitting in the basement unused - so, what the heck.  I really enjoy mine.  couldn't be more pleased.

It is just about the right amount of exercise to ride it every other day to make the chicken feed.  Kinda fun!

Yeah, I’ve been debating on getting the bicycle attachment! The corn and beans with the big auger is almost impossible to hand crank. 😂
