Oldland Flour

The three photos below show us collecting wheat from Snowerhill Farm, Betchworth, Surrey on 2nd October 2023. This will supplement our existing stock of 2022 harvest “Crusoe” to last us well into 2024.

Our current batch of wheat being milled is 2022 harvest, “Crusoe” that was collected from Mill Farm, Chiddingstone, Kent on 19th April 2023.

When the new grain stock arrives at the Mill it will be put through our Winnower first to remove unwanted pieces of wheat stalk and other debris.

Watch the winnower in action (may require additional software) here.

After this, it is loaded into sacks, weighing approximately 20Kg, and raised up to the Bin Floor storage area using the Sack Hoist.

The grain passes from the Bin Floor down to the Grain Hopper, from which it feeds into the “Eye” of the Runner Mill Stone. The grain is ground to the desired texture and flows from the Tun down a “Spout” to the Spout Floor below. There it is collected in sacks, weighed, labelled and securely stored for later packing. A full sack of freshly ground flour weighs approximately 21 Kg.

All flour currently being produced in 2023 is from “Crusoe” wheat stock.
