Friends receive quarterly newsletters, special tours, samples of stone ground grains at special events, and the right to vote for members of the board of Friends of Colvin Run Mill.  Best of all, your membership supports an historic treasure that continues to educate and inform and grind out fine wholewheat flour, not to mention cornmeal, grits, and buckwheat flour.

The tax-deductible membership fee is $35 for individuals and $55 for families.  

If your are interested there  are two ways to proceed. You can download the membership form and return it together with a check to: Friends of Colvin Run Mill, 10017 Colvin Run Road, Great Falls, VA 22066. Alternatively, you can make your membership fee payment via PayPal, which accepts credit and debit cards (see "Membership & Donation page below), and send your name, email address, and ways in which you would like to volunteer to: [email protected].

Business Memberships are available for $100 per year, because business is a big wheel. Business members receive recognition in FOCRM Newsletters, the FOCRM Cookbook, and other communications.

As the old saying goes, getting something done either takes time or money. Consider donating your time as a teacher of the mill's history and simple machine technology, working in the General Store (the candy is terrific), supporting special events like serving hot chocolate for the Santa at the Mill, gardening in formal plots around the house and mill, adopting the nature trail, or helping with the newsletter and public outreach.

The FOCRM membership form has a section to express your interests or just email us at: [email protected]
