Happy New Year to all our customers, friends and supporters. We hope you were able to make the best of Christmas given all that has been going on and, like us, managed to get a good rest! We are now back and preparing to get our noses (as it were..) to the grindstones, gearing up for what we hope will be another successful year bringing you best quality flours. We have lots of plans which you will hear more of as the weeks progress.
Our mail order service is now open again if you need to stock up and the mill shop will be open on Thursday 6th January from 9am to 1pm and again on Sunday 9th January from 2pm to 5pm. We are then back to our usual opening times .
Another piece of exciting news is that Fosters Mill (where we produce the Prior’s Flour) features on Inside the Factory – “Malt Loaf” this week.
Ruth Goodman, the presenter for the part of the show we feature in came to the mill in the autumn of 2020 to explore the reasons why traditional stoneground milling gave way to roller milling at the end of the 19th Century as the later Victorians demand for white flour increased exponentially.
We had a great day with Ruth and the production team, filming as we did in the depths of Covid, precautions and all. We have no idea what will be shown in the programme, but we’re looking forward to finding out!
