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.

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 my bread making flour from the supermarket (expensive and in small bags and lower quality) until I tried this stoneground strong bakers flour in bulk. I have never looked back and I use it to make all my bread. I stopped buying bread from the shops over a year ago and today my Panasonic and this great flour makes all our family loves.

Its top quality and has never failed to produce an outstanding loaf. I also use it to make pizza bases and other breads etc. I wouldn't be without a sack in my house and where I live its rural and if I have power cuts I can also use this to make bread by hand and I bake it on my Rocket Stove.

Superb value, each loaf works out so much cheaper so if you are trying to save money and eat healthier bread that isn't full of air and preservatives buy this. It produces outstanding results and I am totally happy with it.

I buy this on subscription and I recommend it 100% as a top quality bakers flour.

I have used this flour over the last 5 years or so and found the quality to be a bit variable. 9 times out of 10 the product is of outstanding quality making exceptionally full flavoured well risen bread that has a good spring when baked in the oven. Occasionally, however, something goes wrong with their quality control at the mill and the batch of flour does not rise as it should and has little or no spring when baked. I have been baking bread for over 20 years and generally speaking, would recommend this product without hesitation. On the odd occasion that I have had a "bad" one Amazon have issued a replacement or refund without delay or fuss, so - no problem apart from the slight inconvenience of going without proper bread for a day or 2!

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!.

I make bread on a regular basis: I teach professional cookery and also make bread at home. I have tried various ways to to buy in bulk, including the purchase of French bread making flour. Bacheldre Mill flour is reasonably priced for stoneground bread flours and the quality of the product is good. I usually make bread by the Poolish method, preparing the dough 24 hours ahead of baking, so have not used the flour to make a quick loaf. However, the bread I have made is well aerated and nicely springy, with a good flavour, so I am going to continue to use the product. Buying in bulk means you have to keep it for longer: I have had this batch since November 2013 and it appears to remain in good condition. There are lots of reasons for using stoneground flours and I prefer them because I think you get better bread, which might be another reason for buying this flour: overall, I'm satisfied and can recommend it to others.

I started baking my own bread for my wife and I several month's ago and I will never go back to the stuff that is currently sold in the supermarkets labeled 'bread'. I go through one of these bags in two month's, baking around three loaves a week. I also bake for friends after I baked them a loaf and they keep begging for more. The woman who enjoys my bread claims that store bought bread always gives her a migraine but my bread does not.

This flour is made the old fashioned way and I like that about it. It is stone ground which is the way flour is supposed to be milled. On some occasions, when I make two loaves, I mix 250 grams of the Bacheldre Whole Meal Strong flour with the white to get a half-and-half loaf and it's well received by my wife who loves her morning toast.

I follow a recipe that I got from Paul Hollywood's website and mix everything together in a KitchenAid mixer and every loaf comes out perfect every time. I am very pleased with the product, the smell of the product before and after baking and would recommend this to anyone who wants a flavourful flour for baking one or two or twenty loaves. A bit more expensive than the mass produced flours in the supermarket, but worth it.

I rate this product 5 stars!
