Big Spring Mill to Close Doors After 172 Years

Known for its seasoned flour, Virginia company will cease operations in August


Big Spring Mill, Inc., located in Elliston, VA, and widely known for its seasoned flour, will close its doors for the last time in August, Owner Bob Long said in a statement.

For 172 years, Long said the mill has manufactured livestock feed as well as baking flour, including Virginia’s Best self-rising flour, seasoned flour, biscuit mix and corn meal.

Big Spring Mill dates to 1850, and the establishment of a gristmill along the banks of the south fork of the Roanoke River.

Long and Amy Long Ebel, along with Amy’s husband, Mark Ebel, are the fourth generation of family ownership.

“Big Spring Mill would like to thank its employees for years of dedication and generations of customers for their loyalty,” Long said.
