Champion Mills

Falmouth is ably represented in the milling business by the Champion Milling Company.  The plant was erected about 10 years ago, but the enterprising gentlemen now conducting it have only been doing so since July, 1897.  The mill is equipped with the latest improved and best full roller process machinery and under the efficient management of Mr. H. Pietsch the product of the mill has attained a high standard.  Leading brands of their flour are the “Roller King,” and “Peach Blossom,” while “Moss Rose” and “Ten Broeck” are also household favorites.  The capacity is 75 barrels per day and the mill is kept quite busy, as they conduct a custom and exchange business and also ship largely to outside towns.   Mr. Pietsch, who had charge, is a practical miller of lifelong experience.  He was born in Germany and is now thirty-two years old.  He is a member of the K. of P. and a gentleman of excellent standing with his associates and the community at large.
