Behind the mill, Winterton

I got an amazing tour of this mill – from holding the corn in my hand before it was processed to handling it again when it came out as maize meal. Over in the building on the left, on the upper floor, there’s this machine that shakes the product. Presumably they’re getting something other than the corn out of the mix, but I can no longer remember. I do remember that the machine shakes so violently that it bounces around on its feet and shakes the whole room.

Still vibrating from the experience, I do remember standing here appreciating the rock-hard concrete under my feet. The stationary truck sat so grounded – like it might never move – after the rattle of the rubbery room.
