Name: Ken DuBard
Business: The Congaree Milling Co.
Medium: Grits, Cornmeal, Polenta, Oats
Originally From: Cedar Creek, SC
Now Located: Columbia, SC
How Did You Get Started?: I have been working in the milling industry for about 12 years.
What Do You Love About What You Do?: It is important that food be available that is outside the homogeny of the food giants of the world. Producing food that is uncommon and created with care is the challenge and reward for what I do.
Mission Statement: I founded The Congaree Milling Company with the goal of being an organic and sustainable grits mill.
Etc: Ken has made civic duty and charitable work an integral part of his company, commitments of time that bring him close to his neighbors through volunteer work. The Congaree Milling Co is a proud member of the South Carolina Specialty Foods Association and a volunteer for Sustainable Midlands, a local non-profit that works to make the midlands of South Carolina a great place to live.
