I think you need Mesa Harina to make your own, if that's what you mean. I saw it at the Honeybee on Bagley

If you're looking for someone else's homemade tortillas, you'll probably have to find out by word of mouth. Making your own is not too difficult, though I'd expect to go through some iteration before making some that were pretty good. Masa harina and water will start you off, though for hard-core action you can start with field corn, lime and a mill and make your own flour.

I know that you make a dough out of the Mesa and water, and pat it into rounds and usually press it in a tortilla press, then 'bake' it on a griddle.

I know of a place in Saginaw that is that has really good homemade torts its a factory that employs like 15 people at the most and they have the torts all over the state if you want the number I can give it to you. I believe they can probely ship if you want them.
