Miller

Have you ever wondered how the flour you bake with ends up in your kitchen? Kerry Henry is the Head Miller at Ardent Mills in Ayer, MA, where he helps to get it there!

Originally from Vermont, Kerry started in millwrighting and traveled throughout New England working on feed mill equipment. After moving to Ayer, MA with his family, Kerry worked his way up at the mill in that town for more than a decade.

Every day at the mill is different, but the main goal remains the same: getting everything you can out of the wheat kernels that are dropped off by rail and truck. Different parts of that wheat kernel become things you see all the time, like your kitchen flour and feed for animals. Some of Kerry’s main tasks are running the mill smoothly to make as much product as possible, making sure everyone remains safe, and maintaining food safety through activities such as audits and sanitation protocols.
