About Us


Welcome to McEwen & Sons, located in the quaint community of Wilsonville, Alabama. Several years ago, my wife Helen and I started the corn-grinding business in an effort to embrace a healthier diet emphasizing organic foods and whole grains. We purchased our own stone burr grist mill to grind only the finest organic corn into some of the most delicious cornmeal, grits, and polenta products available today. We also bag, seal, and sell healthy, hearty rolled oats and golden flax seed.

Our Products

Our stone-ground products are sold in several specialty food stores in Birmingham (Alabama Goods, Whole Foods, Snapper Grabbers, The Fish Market, Piggly Wiggly, Western Supermarket, Durbin Farms etc.), in our Wilsonville store, and are served in many fine restaurants in the South and beyond. The stone burr grist mill's excellent reputation has spread in recent years, and today you can buy McEwen & Sons grits, cornmeal, and polenta from coast to coast, and of course, on this website. So give us a call, send us an email, or better yet, come and visit us in the heart of Shelby County.

A Family Business

Our sons, Frank, Jr. and Luke, provide the ideal accompaniment to the hearty corn grits: big, rich, brown and blue eggs. The boys raise their free-range chickens in an antibiotic-free and hormone-free environment. They have many loyal customers, including some of the best restaurants in the Birmingham area.
