Product Description

Product Description

This white flour has been more refined and developed to produce a whiter loaf, it is strong for bread making and makes wonderful bread for all the family to enjoy.

About the Mill

Milling is the one of the oldest and most necessary craft's. At Bacheldre Watermill we use a blend of traditional skills and equipment with modern machinery to create a range of award winning Organic flours. The grain is first cleaned in our refurbished 'Eureka scouring and separating machine' dating back to the late 1800's before it goes to the hopper above the stone.

The Millers' Tale

When Matt and Anne Scott first visited Bacheldre Watermill, in the beautiful Welsh Marches, it was love at first sight: "We just knew this was the place for us", explains Matt. Having decided to start a new business in the country, the Scotts had planned to work in tourism, and Bacheldre was being sold as a campsite that just happened to have a watermill attached.

"There's been a mill here since 1575, and the idea of keeping that heritage going really appealed to us. The mill was a working museum when we first came across it but was only grinding around a tonne of grain a month. We went into it as complete novices, but learnt quickly. We have increased production as the business has gone from strength to strength, and we have won many awards for the quality of our flour, our packaging and our business. Our success is really down to our attention to detail and the traditional methods we employ for our milling, and also the way we pack it. By stone grinding the flour we retain all the natural goodness and flavours of the wheat germ. Our range of bread, home baking and speciality flours are a must for the home kitchen through to Michelin star restaurants."

There has been a water mill at Bacheldre since 1575 and the current building was built in 1747. The mill was built to service the 500 acre estate of 'Crow Wood' including the hamlet of Bacheldre, it has been mainly used during the winter months, due to the supply of water to the mill, and for such a small estate only a small amount of feed and flour was required.

Today we have grown the business and although we do use motors to turn our stone's, this has been done sympathetically to match the speed that the water wheel turns the stones, we can mill longer in the day, but not faster. We use a green energy supply and we are now working on installing an electric generator to the waterwheel to use the water to create some of the electric required.

Ingredients

WHEAT flour, statutory nutrients (calcium carbonate, iron, thiamin and niacin).

I really like this flour; it's been fabulous for bread making whether it's loaves, rolls, pizza bases and even brioche. There is a but though. as I have just cancelled my subscription due to the packaging. When we first started ordering it came in a strong lining polythene sack which kept the sack from being ripped/punctured during transport. Over the last few orders, this lining has been omitted in the packaging and we've had as a result several deliveries now where the paper sack has been ripped open.

We've contacted amazon a couple of times about this and they've been really good at sorting it out, but now I'm at the point where I don't want to order any more until the packaging is better.

I used to buy flour in bulk from a modern mill and it was fine but nothing special. Recently I have been experimenting with home breadmaking - using different techniques and ingredients and I can honestly say this flour produces a bread that tastes much better than the ordinary 'run of the mill' flours on offer at the supermarkets. I do alot of baking, so am really pleased to be able to buy in bulk and have it delivered. My next experiment is with their organic flour but I would recommend this one without hesitation; it tastes great, is very reasonably priced and you don't have to lug flour home with the shopping every week!.

HI All,

I started baking my own bread a while ago and kind of got the bug. Due to the amounts of flour I was using I wanted to buy a bulk sack to save money and I am really glad I did.

This flour is a really good quality strong bread flour, and you can taste this in the breads that you bake. I have used this now to make excellent white loaves, baguettes, pizza, naan, pita and sourdough. I even used this flour to make pasta with, and had excellent results.

I am a hand baker, but I am sure that this flour would be equally as good using a bread machine. Also if you subscribe to this item you save money and postage charges, and they automatically send me a 16kg sack every 2 months, but you can specify the duration to suit your baking needs. A white loaf now costs me about 50p, and tastes so much better!

Highly recommended and I will also be trying some of Bacheldre's other specialist flours :

Happy baking!

The product arrived promptly and as described, the packaging was damaged and torn but luckily the product came in a airtight plastic bag so no damage done to product packaging and this i attribute to delivery anyway and not manufacturer. This is my third 16kg bag of flower from this supplier and i have no complaints its very good quality at a very good price. i would reccommend to any pizza or bread makers out there, try the malted flour makes great country style bread

I have just come on to order another sack of this flour. I am new to breadmaking, but from reading the reviews I gather that I have just been extremely lucky to come across this flour early in the process. I have used it to make white, mixed (50% Wholemeal) loaves, bacon and cheese, olive, herb, fruit loaves, and the results have been fantastic. I bought a breadmaker at the beginning of the summer and since it arrived I haven't bought a loaf of bread at the shop. I don't know how my postman felt about lugging a 16kg sack of flour to my door...but he had better get used to it. Highly recommended product!

Edited to add: 6 months later I am still using this flour and have not bought bread in 6 months - still getting great results and I have just bought the larger 25kg sack (much to the delight of my postman I am sure). Free super-saver delivery is great. I have posted a photograph of one of my loaves made with this flour.

This is is the first time I have bought Bacheldre Mill flour, and I shall be buying it again. However, when I had my bread risen and ready for the oven, I noticed little brown flecks in it, which I think are wheatgerm. This means the bread is not completely white, which is not a problem for me, but which other customers should be aware of.

The product is very good, I've baked some fantastic bread with this flour. As I bake a lot it's great to know that I have plenty in ! My one and only criticism is that when the flour is delivered it's not as shown on Amazon, it's in a plain white bag (rather like a cement bag) and not as detailed on the photo.
