While growing up in a family of 14 children, Esther Miller developed a love for cooking. When her mother began making homemade noodles for several local grocers, Esther also discovered a passion for the business. In 1973 Esther ventured into her own noodle-making endeavor. She spent hours in her kitchen experimenting with the noodle-making process until she had it perfected. This same old fashioned process of kneading, rolling and cutting is still used today. For 18 years, Esther, along with her husband, children, and a few other employees, made noodles in her basement and delivered to local grocery and bulk food stores. However, the business continued to grow and the basement became over-crowded.
In 1990, the Millers bought an old car dealership which they turned into a noodle factory where they remain today. They also bought their first automated pasta machinery, which they have long since grown out of as well. Mrs. Miller’s continues to be family owned and operated. The family feels blessed to be able to work together while still having time for things that really matter to them – God, family, and community. The business is located in Fredericksburg, Ohio, a small village in Ohio’s Amish Country where traditions of hard work, love of family, good ethics, and enjoyment of life’s simple pleasures are prospering.
