See The Inner Workings Of How Stone Ground Grits Are Made At Marsh Hen Mill And Market In South Carolina
You don’t need to be an avid chef to appreciate high quality stone ground grits. A South Carolina starch staple, grits are pretty much a universal dish in the Palmetto State and used in classic meals like shrimp and grits served all over the state. But where do they come from? The highest quality stone ground grits are produced on Edisto Island at Marsh Hen Mill (formerly Geechie Boy Mill).
