Siemer Milling Company 135 years logo

Today marks the 135th year of operation for Siemer Milling Company.  Since 1882 our company has been built on customer service and relationships with both producers and farmers alike.  This year we celebrate our 135th year with a video featuring the very mission that started it all….quality ingredients begin with quality wheat.  We’re dedicated to the innovations of today for a sustainable tomorrow.

Siemer Milling Company is a family- and employee-owned company, begun in 1882 in Teutopolis, IL. Our primary product is wheat flour milled to different specifications for foods like crackers, cakes, biscuits, cookies, pretzels, and batters & breadings.

Siemer Milling operates flour mills at Teutopolis, IL; Hopkinsville, KY; and West Harrison, IN. Altogether, we grind 25 million bushels of locally-grown wheat into about 750,000 tons of flour, bran, and wheat germ every year. According to company President Rick Siemer, “Our mills are among the most modern in the U.S. milling industry. We have increased production capacity 70% in the last seven years. It’s a matter of genuine pride to us that we buy over $100 million of wheat from area farmers and provide good jobs to 170 people, as well as support many worthy causes in the communities where we are located.”
