About the MillMilling 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' TaleWhen 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.

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 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 :
Well, let me say, unashamedly that I was bitten by scepticism by organic flour. I once believed flour made the bread. As the fundamental of any loaf, you'd easily think this. But it's not. I had sleepless nights for months, frustrated and embarrassed, by my amateur loaves, breaking and subsequently binning loaf after loaf that tore - dense, heavy, doughy, no sweet sound for me - the 'crackle' - which defines the brilliant handmade loaf.
I had some books (so many are bad), the 'method' (endless kneading, proofing that was pushed to the maximum), the ingredients (some very cheap), but I'd little knowledge. Now armoured with more knowledge and experience, thanks to premier bakers such as Richard Bertinet (Dough is essential for a novice baker) and Dan Lepard (The Handmade Loaf is not for the novice, Short and Sweet is excellent), I've been dabbling with my technique and my ingredients. And even I can bake a yummy white loaf within 5 hours, from the moment I weigh out the flour to turning out my loaf onto a cooling rack, that elusive white loaf that foxed me for far too long.Read more ›
