Wolfgang Mock began building electric stone mills for home use back in the 1970s, and by 2014 he was known around the world as "The Mill Maker". Approaching the age at which most people retire, he found his creative energy was flowing even stronger, and he felt a strong desire to finally create the fine stone mill "that every family can afford". This was the genesis of the "Mockmill" brand.
Working from decades of experience in inventing, building and servicing fine tabletop stone mills, Wolfgang had specific ideas on how to improve on his millstone design and how to build new models at a much lower cost. He put those ideas to work, found the means to invest in the elaborate tooling needed, and in 2017 introduced the new Mockmill 100 and Mockmill 200 models, ideal for families on the one hand and food service professionals on the other. Those models have been a roaring success, sold already to 75 countries around the world. In 2019 he added four new models sporting elegant wooden housings.
For Wolfgang, "It's not about the mill". What is important to him is that people everywhere come to realise that, by perpetuating our century-and-a-half-old mistake of preferring refined flours, they are missing out on the joys and benefits of eating whole grains and are exposing themselves to a significantly higher risk of debilitating disease in later life. Recent developments in the understanding of how our bodies (and its tenants) work are confirming Wolfgang's message of the last four decades: "You must insist on getting your fibre and natural vitamins and on eating whole foods!" The highly dedicated Mockmill team, from their countryside headquarters in Germany, are dedicated to ensuring the satisfaction and maximum pleasure of Mockmillers around the world. We hope you'll put your trust in Wolfgang's vision, and in our team. Happy Mockmilling!
