Our flours are grown & milled on the farm

We produce a variety of different flours here at Maple Farm Kelsale.  Made from organic wheat, organic spelt or organic rye, our flours are suitable for all types of traditional baking, but do vary from mass-produced flours.  They may not be as strong as imported flours because of the lower protein levels of the English wheat varieties we grow, but they are considered to have a significantly fuller flavour.  They make delicious pastry and bread.

A note on Spelt

We’re delighted that we are now home-milling our organic spelt crop. Spelt is an ancient grain which is winning renewed popularity. It is naturally high in fibre and contains significantly more protein than wheat. Spelt flour is not gluten-free, but it is known to be digestible by some people with wheat allergies.

We are happy to supply in large bags and to trade customers.

We use locally grown crops

We always think it a bit of a surprise that buying locally grown and locally milled flour can be a challenge – even in Suffolk where farmers grow over a quarter of a million acres of wheat every year. Unfortunately, most of the grain disappears down farm drives in big lorries, never to be heard of again. Maple Farm Kelsale flours are milled in Suffolk from crops harvested in Suffolk.

Keeping the milling tradition alive

It’s a sad fact that all but a few of Suffolk’s small mills are now in ruins. So we took things into our own hands. After a lengthy search, we found a small family firm which still makes fine traditional stone mills… in Austria. The rest is just continuing our local history.

Stone mills run at slow speeds so the flour does not overheat and few of the essential nutrients are lost. Our flours are fresh. They contain no preservatives and do not undergo any bleaching processes.
