Organic Flour Mill
Gilchesters Organics

Jo from Rise Bakery bakes her bread with Gilchester's organic, local flour. Situated 2 miles North of Hadrian's wall, deep in the heart of Northumberland is the North East’s only organic flour mill where they gently stone grind, rare breed grains into some of the finest flour you can lay your hands on. From seed to soil to stone grinding Gilchesters organics work with nature, milling only the grains they grow. At Gilchesters, on the site of a roman fort, they work with nature growing and milling heritage grains and rearing white Galloway rare-breed cattle to combine a balance between farming and wildlife conservation. The choice of heritage wheat grains as well as rye, spelt and even older Emmer and Einkorn cereals is the result of painstaking research into organic crop husbandry on the farm over the years. The organic farming methods allow them to produce the food people want in harmony with our surroundings. Modern farming production methods often ignore the fundamental principal of growing crops and livestock within the natural constraints of the land.
