Siemer Milling Company has been celebrating its 135th anniversary this year. The company began November 6, 1882 in Teutopolis, IL as “Hope Mills of Uptmor & Siemer Proprietors." It would be renamed as Siemer Milling Company in 1906.

The company's primary product is wheat flour milled to different specifications for foods like crackers, cakes, biscuits, cookies, pretzels, and batters & breadings. They also produce food grade wheat bran and germ as nutritional co-products, and a heat-treated flour for soups, sauces, and gravies.

Throughout their history, Siemer Milling has invested in other aspects of the milling and feed industry as opportunities for growth appeared. However, whether these ventures would remain as critically valued components of the business or separated to become their own successful enterprises, Siemer Milling’s core business as a wheat flour mill would remain the same and is the foundation for their growth.
