Western Australia Mills

Hi Everyone,

I've recently returned back to Perth (Western Australia) after living in Copenhagen for the last 4 years. While in Denmark I learnt how to make some amazing sourdough using a blend of different flours, T45, T65, T80 and wholemeal.  I've found an organic grain supplier but I'm having trouble finding a mill who can or will produce these types of flour.  I know it's a long shot but if anybody knows of anywhere in Western Australia, a method I could use (which doesn't cost a small fortune), any information or advice would be gratefully received.

 

Kind regards

 

Mark

Hi Mark welcome back to Perth unfortunately there are not so many choices when it comes to mills here in the West

There is Eden Valley from down Dumbleyung way in the Great Southern who produce Bio dynamic flours

 

https://www.edenvalleybiodynamic.com.au/     There is Millers at Byford  not sure if you can buy direct from the millwww.byfordflour.com.au/ There is also the iconic Dingo flour being produced but a bit pricey at $4.00 a kg kind regards Derek

Thanks Derek, I'm really after somewhere where I can work with the miller to mess around with different grades of white flour.  Eden Valley are too busy and Miller's aren't interested unless maybe I buy a couple of truck loads, However I'll give Dingo a try and keep looking.  

 

Cheers
