Grains for milling in the UK

Hi everyone!  Just wondering where other UK people get their wheat for milling?  I ordered 5Kg of wheat berries online from Brow Farm to get me started, and they are great, but quite expensive compared to buying flour, even organic locally milled flour.  Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi!  I'm in South Wales.  Thanks!

I am in north Kent. If you had been closer I'm sure we could have worked something out.


I buy organic (bio-dynamic) Demeter grade wheat in 25Kg sacks, £14.50 direct from a local farm. A quick google would probably find its details.

I guess I'll have to try to find a farm close to me that grows wheat.  What is demeter grade?  Thanks again for your replies!
