Stocking Mill Coffee Name and Mission.

Stocking Mill Coffee Name and Mission.

     23 August 1777, a sunny day in Glastonbury, Ct, along the north side of Roaring Brook. 

     There sat the Stocking Mill Gunpowder factory. The mill was run by George Stocking Sr. and his four sons, George Jr., Hezekiah, Nathaniel and Elisha, and supplied gunpowder for George Washington's Continental Army. The factory produced a highly explosive powder used in small amounts to ignite a heavier powder in flintlock firearms. 

     They made the gunpowder using a mixture of charcoal, potash and sulfur, Eunice Cobb Stocking, George Stocking Sr.'s wife, helped deliver it to the outskirts of Boston or New York City. Eunice was returning from Massachusetts through Bolton Notch when the ground shook and a large, black cloud rose in the distance. Eunice rushed to the mill. When she arrived, she found her husband, George Jr., Hezekiah, Nathaniel and two other workers dead from an explosion at the factory. Her remaining son, Elisha, had been on an errand and survived.            

      She enlisted some financial help, built the factory up again and continued to supply gunpowder for the Army until the end of the war.

      This story inspired us so much we decided to name our coffee company after it. Our nation was fighting for it’s independence and gun powder is something our army desperately needed. She lost almost her entire family fighting for freedom. She delivered the gunpowder in what were known as “Angel Carts”. It was a dangerous job. She however took over the whole operation and rebuilt. She didn’t let sorrow, anger, or even fear defeat her.  Our freedom is a product of her actions and many others like hers. For this we are thankful.

     Many companies now make stands for issues that are being dealt with today. They use their resources and voices to bring attention and help fix whatever issue they are taking on. We commend that. 

     We have decided to do same. We already try to use our resources to help the veteran community and will continue to do so. But our focus will be on freedom. Freedom is the one word and one thing that makes any change possible. Freedom is what sets America apart and is what will keep America ahead.

     Work hard in your community to support freedom. It starts at home. Connect with others that support freedom. Stop spending money or resources on companies or areas that don’t promote freedom. Take care of your family. Raise your kids in the admonition of the Lord and with an appreciation for what we have here. Lead by example. 

     Whatever you do, wherever you go, be kind yet serious, and when you get there....arrive violently.

I recently ordered “Risen” and thought it the best coffee yet. Now I cannot find any on your site. How may I order more of this product?

I want to unsubscribe from the monthly coffee subscription, but cannot figure out how to on your website. The reason I want to quit is because this site is not user friendly at all!!! I have given you many chances but it is too much of a hassle to change anything, or do anything on it, so I want out.

Greatly appreciate your service to the country and my desire to support a true American Company. No hurry on my order, happy to hear the outstanding support you are receiving! Concerning the coffee mugs and t-shirts Please have them Made In America! We are already bearing the cost of selling out to China. God Bless our Freedom!

Just received my shipment of “The Valley” dark roast yesterday. It is STUPID-GOOD. Made as an Americano in my DeLonghi and it is absolutely awesome. This is my new favorite.
