Anyway after work yesterday I went to Ben Furney flour Mills to buy some flour. Their retail shop is lovely and full of all sorts of products for baking and cooking, many of them ingredients that I find difficult to source up here. The other thing was that I had not realised they grow and mill their own flour. I find that very exciting, surely that is how food production ought to be in a sustainable system. Grown, processed and retailed locally!
As well as the flour range and cooking ingredients they also stock a range of poultry and animal feeds. Poultry feed has been a dilemma for me as I want to buy organic but is is prohibitively expensive. This feed while not organic, is chemical free and locally grown. It is no more expensive than any commercially available feed either. I will also be able to get feed for the goats and horses from here. So a great find indeed.
I cant wait to bake with this flour.
