BRISTOL — Visitors will have the opportunity to sample baked goods made fresh from Bonneyville Mill’s stone-ground hard red flour at a Bake Day event Saturday.

Dating back to the mid-1830s, Bonneyville is Indiana’s oldest continuously operating gristmill and offers visitors a taste of local history with fresh stone-ground flour, produced daily.

This summer, the mill is highlighting some of its unique products with monthly Bake Days.

The Bake Day starting at 11 a.m. June 22 will feature Scottish oats and show the entire progression — from unprocessed oat groats through finished baked products. Along with freshly baked treats to sample, the event will feature tips and recipes for bakers to try at home.

Cost is free and and open to all ages. Sampling begins at 11 a.m. and will continue until all samples are gone.

Bonneyville Mill is open 10 a.m. to 5 Wednesday through Sunday from May through October. The historic mill is located in Bonneyville Mill County Park, 2.5 miles east of Bristol, south of S.R. 120 at 53373 C.R. 131.
