How It Works

Thank you for your interest in South Texas Milling, Inc. for your fund-raising needs. We offer your organization a variety of refreshing new products. Most importantly, most fund-raisers in the market today allow a percentage of profit based on quantities sold. With our Fresh from the Farm Fund-raisers, your organization will receive fifty percent (50%) of the profit on every product sold, whether one or one thousand items are sold; that is, if you are willing to separate the orders yourself. For those of you who would like to receive your orders packed by individual sellers, we offer a thirty (30%) profit program. Whether you choose the 50% profit plan or the 30% profit plan, you will receive the same great products. All of our products are made with natural, high quality ingredients that have surpassed a wide range of taste tests. We offer a wonderful variety of products including cornmeal products, seafood coatings, dip mixes, soup mixes, syrups, jelly, jerky, and nut mixes. Samples are available upon request at a nominal fee and shipping cost. We are looking forward to working with your organization. To book your fund-raiser, please contact us at 361/570-3867/866-570-4005 or you can also e-mail her to request additional information at sales@stxmilling.com.
