Little Crow Milling Company was founded by W.F. Maish, Sr. in Warsaw, Indiana.
After a major fire, the Company could no longer process grain and so began selling five-pound paper sacks of pancake mix.

Retailers could sell the pancake mix, and receive 25-cents for the basket, while consumers received more than they bargained for!
