A large mill at Chillfurrow Farm
A grain mill at Fellstar Farm

Milling is an action that can be performed by NPCs and by you at some farms and mills.

In order to activate this animation sequence, you must activate an available grain mill. You will then proceed to push the grindstone in a circle around the mill for one revolution. A follower can also be ordered to turn it. However, it is only an animation in the original version of the game, as the milling process yields no results.

With Hearthfire installed, you can activate small grain mills to create a sack of flourHF using 3 wheat.

  • Activating a grain mill and backing out will cause it to continue moving until it reaches its starting position, seemingly under its own power.
  • Activating a grain mill can cause you to face the same direction until roughly halfway through the rotation, then you'll move with the mill until it returns to its starting position. ?
