Behind the Name

On social media platforms, you may have noticed a tattoo on my right thigh revealing the outline of Saskatchewan. This simple tattoo holds profound significance as it represents my deep connection to the province and my identity as a prairie girl.

While contemplating a name for my company, inspiration struck one night as I lay in bed. The concept of "Grain" materialized, encompassing the diverse meanings behind it, including Miller - my last name, sand and wood grain. In my mind, the image of an old wooden grain elevator emerged, symbolizing the disappearing landmarks that once dotted our flat prairie landscape.

Recognizing that these iconic structures are becoming increasingly rare in small towns, paying homage to them through my company's name felt like a natural choice. Just as I used to count them on hockey road trips from one small town to another, I wanted to celebrate and preserve the legacy of these prairie giants.
