Their wholemeal bread flour is made using 100% of the grain. Wessex Mill flour is milled using local wheat that they’ve collected themselves from farms surrounding the mill. They ensure they only select the best wheat with high quality gluten by testing samples before they bring any into the mill. Being a small mill means they can store the wheats from each farm separately without batching. This allows us to carefully select the wheats that we mix together for the grist to produce quality consistent flour. You even can find the names of the farms that we use on the packet.
Wessex Mill is a traditional roller milling process, as opposed to the modern energy intensive method of debranning the wheat before grinding it into flour. We mill our flour slowly; this means the flour doesn’t heat up as much as other flour mills, preventing the protein from damage.
The consistency of their flour is down to buying good wheat. The area around the mill produces some of the best wheats in the UK. Buying from local farms and picking the wheat up in their own lorries.
