Shipton Mill

By really understanding our grains, the flour we make and its application, we can help you to achieve truly magnificent loaves, cakes and pastries. We strongly believe that the farming practices informed by the agro-ecological principles that we support will maintain and improve the soil fertility, so that our descendants will inherit a fertile earth. The provenance of the product and the quality of the grain are as important to us as the production method. We source our grains from local farms for a number of our blends. Over the years, we have also built relationships with suppliers across the world who share our values. It is from these suppliers, for example, that we source some of the rare and old varieties of grain that we cannot easily obtain from British shores to make a number of our speciality flours. We value these networks of interesting and dynamic people immensely, who all help to create and add something to the finished product beyond taste alone. We actively promote the cultivation of rare and old varieties of wheat. This is not a commercial decision as the returns are far too small. We believe in the need to preserve and retain varieties that are not readily available, and to promote the genetic diversity that such crops, and their sympathetic farming methods, engender their past.
