Nestled on the banks of Neshaminy Creek in historic Bucks County, PA, Castle Valley Mill began grinding grains in 1730. Built on land that was given to the Meredith family by William Penn, the mill has been known as Grove's Mill, Reed's Mill, and now Castle Valley Mill. This historic building has witnessed the birth, growth and advance of our country. With the Industrial Revolution came internal combustion engines and electricity; slowly, the value of water power diminished, and the buildings fell into disrepair. The property was in poor condition when Mark Fischer's grandfather, Henry Fischer, purchased and restored the property in 1947. A miller from Erlbach, Germany, Henry loved the hard work and satisfaction of milling and made Castle Valley his home. Henry saved many milling machines and examples of American technology and ingenuity when older mills in Bucks County were being torn down or gutted.
