UK Millers

There are a couple of very large, excellent millers of organic flour in the UK and you can always find their flour on supermarket shelves.  Dove’s farm is probably the most famous of these.  There are smaller millers who may not have the power or the inclination to get on the supermarket shelves and who make absolutely excellent flour.  The ones whose flour we have used are listed below.  If you are a miller and would like to send us a sample to try in the bakery or if you are a baker and would like to recommend a miller to us please contact us.

The importance of stone ground flour cannot be underestimated.  The Traditional Corn Millers Guild is an excellent resource and has a mill finder here.

All of the millers below come recommended.  Many do mail order.

  1. Hi – what a lovely philosophy and website you have! I have really enjoyed looking round. I live in Norfolk and I’d like to recommend the Letheringsett Water Mill range of flours. Their website is http://www.letheringsettwatermill.co.uk/. Good Luck with all your endeavors!

    1. Emily, how kind of you! Thanks. In actual fact we also love the Letheringsett Water Mill flour! Rosie Clark, one of the Bread Angels, teaches in North Norfolk. It would be lovely to welcome you on a course sometime soon! Kind regards, Virtuous Bread

  2. I’ve just discovered Tuxford Windmill a few miles north of Newark just off the A1 (www.tuxford-windmill.co.uk) I have no connection with the business other than as a very satisfied customer.

  3. We have used Shipton Mill flour for years and found it to be a fantastic product. We even found a local bakery in Carmel in the Lake District using it. The baker said that they had tried several different miller’s flours and found Shipton’s to be superior.
