Welcome to Atkinson Milling Company!

As you explore our website, you'll find a company that has a rich history dating all the way back to the year 1757.

The Mill
We've been making quality cornmeal products at our mill in Johnston County, North Carolina since before the American Revolution! 

Since we are a family-owned business, making quality, competitively priced products is not just our job, it's our personal commitment.

Ray And Betty

       "Cornbread Man"

    Ray Wheeler and wife Betty

We try to put a little bit of family pride into every bag we make. If our products are not the very best products on the market, then they don't deserve the name "Atkinson's" on the bag.

Breakfast Pack includes:  Cinnamon Biscuit Mix, Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Grits (Yellow or White), Biscuit Mix without Butter Flakes


With our Biscuit Mix w/Butterflakes, you get the same great-tasting biscuit as with our Buttermilk Biscuit Mix.  However, there are a couple of notable differences. That's because of the way our imitation butterflakes melt throughout your biscuits.

Atkinson's Yellow Grits

These Yellow grits aren't like those processed grits you buy in the grocery store.  These are hearty, Stone-Ground grits.  It takes longer to cook these grits, but the flavor and texture will convince you that the extra time is well worth it.

Atkinson White Corn Meal

This is stone-ground corn meal.  Yes we do grind it slowly on mill stones, ever since 1757!  We specialize in grinding our meal fine, as opposed to the roller-ground meal you usually find in the grocery stores.  It's a slow process, but it's worth it.

Atkinson's Seafood Breader

Atkinson's Regular Seafood Breader has long been a fried seafood staple in the South.  Mildly seasoned, this breader gives you a light coating on all kinds of seafood.  A favorite of "Calabash-style" cooks for over 35 years.


If you like the taste of cinnamon, this is the most versatile product you'll find.  With this mix you can make biscuits, coffeecake, sheet cake, even pancakes.  Just add buttermilk.
