New Hope Mills

New Hope Mills started in Moravia, NY as a flour mill servicing the local farming community since 1823. After over 200 years, 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 NHM 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 2004, New Hope Mills moved operations to Auburn, NY which allowed an expansion of the mix production. This also enabled the store to grow through addition of a café in 2009 and then remodeled with additional seating in 2017.

They produce 20 pancake mixes along with several other varieties of mixes under the New Hope Mills brand and co-pack a large variety of mixes for other companies all over the United States. Their classic Buttermilk Pancake mix is one of their best sellers and the oldest mix, Old Fashioned Buckwheat, which has a slightly nutty flavor, is their second-best seller. Pancakes are not all that they offer – in the store and café you can shop and enjoy a meal in an historical setting. Enjoy a hot breakfast, lunch, Friday fish, fresh baked goods, locally roasted coffee, 100% fruit smoothies, espresso drinks, and more. In the store, you will find something for everyone, such as baking mixes, syrups, teas, jams, honey, popcorn, puzzles, gifts, locally made items, and unique kitchen finds.
