Hello from a windmill in Suffolk, UK
My name is Linda and eight years ago my husband and I bought a cottage in rural Suffolk, UK, which included a working windmill which orginally dates back to 1751. Since then we have been grinding organic wheat on a part-time basis to sell at our local farmer's market at Wyken Vineyards to help to pay for the up-keep of the mill. At first we just sold wholemeal and "80%" (having had most of the bran removed by sieving) flour, but gradually we increased our range as we found out what our mill could produce and sourcing local grains. We now mix our own flour and muesli recipes, and sell a variety of grains to add to baking. All this is without any additives.
It is very time consuming to maintain and give guided tours round a windmill, so I have to admit for a while I did less baking after we moved here than before. I have been encouraged to join by one of our lovely customers, your very own JOHN01473. I am already overwhelmed by the amount of information and help available! John has kindly offered to help us put some recipes on our website in the New Year.
