House-Autry Is Calling All Southern Cooks

Posted: September 24, 2011

House-Autry  Mills has a lot to brag about – 200 years of being in business. How many brands can claim 200 years, or even 25 to 50 for that matter. It all started back in 1812 when the House family migrated from England to Newton Grove, North Carolina. The millstones for the original mill were shipped across the Atlantic from England to Wilmington, North Carolina, and then ferried up the Cape Fear River and transported by oxcart and mule team to the original mill site in Newton Grove. The House mill grew and eventually merged with the Autry Brothers Mill Company in 1967 to form what is now called House-Autry Mills. In 2001 they relocated their mill to a state-of-the-art facility in nearby Four Oaks, North Carolina. What’s their product? Corn meal and seasoned breadings and coatings for seafood, chicken, pork & veggies.

So how does a company celebrate 200 years of being in business? Well, why not a contest! House-Autry is compiling a cookbook of the best Southern recipes and you have a chance to be a part of it all. They’re looking for recipes that  incorporate at least one House-Autry product and the  stories and traditions behind these special recipes. The best recipes will be included in the cookbook and possibly featured on the House-Autry Mills  Facebook page, YouTube page or website.
