Flour production started again at Queen’s Mill following an initiative led by Trust volunteer Rod Rayner. The flour we produce comes from wheat grown in the fields around Selby using traditional stoneground methods. Unlike mordern milling nothing is added and nothing is taken away from the wheat. This gives us a unique flour which is ideal for bread and pastries.Our flour is readily available from these outlets in both 0.5kg and 1.5kg bags. If you are a professional baker we can supply flour in 15kg tubs.
This book is a collaboration between the Trust volunteers. It contains a history of Queen’s Mill, artwork by Dave Cawthorne’s Thursday Art Group, photographs by Rod Rayner and recipes using our flour. There are recipes for bread, cakes, pastries and even dog biscuits! All the recipes have been tried and tested by John with the help of our miller Dave Weatherson and John’s two dogs Daisy and Dennis.
