North Carolina Family-Owned Midstate Mills and Neese’s Sausage pair up to serve

FREE Sausage Biscuits!

Newton, NC (August 14, 2011), On September 14, Midstate Mills will host the second annual Southern Biscuit® Day event by offering free biscuits and sausage to everyone that comes to the town square in Newton, North Carolina between 7 am and noon.

Midstate Mills will be baking biscuits from scratch using Southern Biscuit® Formula L Biscuit Mix and buttermilk.  The family-owned, North Carolina mill is just steps away from the town square and has milled southern flour for over 75 years.  The flour was just mentioned in the New York Times as one of the flours to use for ideal biscuits!

To add to the perfect biscuit, Midstate Mills asked another family-owned North Carolina company, Neese’s Sausage to join them this year.  Neese’s will be cooking their sausage and liver pudding.

The biscuits will be served fast for people on the go or you can linger a while, enjoy meeting your neighbors, sign up for prizes, or learn to make biscuits by coming to a biscuit class at 10:00 am offered by the mills baking experts.  They will announce the winner of a biscuit recipe and hand out the winning recipe at the class.

The event is sponsored by Midstate Mills in Newton, NC. Midstate Mills has been the maker of Southern Biscuit® Flour and Tenda-Bake® Corn Meal and Pancake Mixes for over 75 years.  Come out and meet the folks that make the flour, and grab a quick free breakfast.

The sausage is courtesy of Neese’s, Sausage another family-owned North Carolina food company that has been making sausage for nearly one hundred years and is being run by the fourth generation family in Guilford County.
