Milling Britain’s Finest Flour for over 100 years
The Matthews family has been trading grain and milling flour in the heart of the Cotswolds since the 1800s. We’re proud to offer premium quality Organic and Stoneground Wholegrain flour, using grain from local farmers and traditional milling techniques.
This fantastic prize will give two lucky people the chance to come and see how we do it! We'll arrange a date that works for you, in coordination with our local partners, so winners will need to have their details shared to enable bookings.
Generations of Farming Families
Built by FWP (Frederick) Matthews on the river Evenlode in 1912, you’ll find us working here to this day. Overlooking the picturesque Cotswold village of Shipton-Under-Wychwood, our mill is part of the landscape in this beautiful part of the world. It’s where we mill, pack and ship every order to your door.
Today, the company is led by father and son team Paul and Bertie Matthews – FWP Matthews’ great, great-grandsons.
Get a sneak peek of your mill tour
The promotional video below will give you a glimpse of what to expect when you join us for a mill tour. We run these regularly throughout the year for groups of up to ten at a time - by appointment only with limited tickets each year. Look out for special Baking Club emails as we make new dates available for 2024.
This year and next we're supporting our local theatre as they celebrate 50 years of performance, and we're offering two tickets to one of their shows as part of this epic prize! Find out more about Chipping Norton Theatre here.
We'll do our best to make sure your visit lines up well with their show programme, ideally with the show we're sponsoring in 2024 - or another show of your choice. Lark Rise By Keith Dewhurst, from the book by Flora Thompson, is a special production and is sponsored by Matthews Cotswold Flour (currently planned for July 2024).
Farming methods that create healthy soils and resilient fields are a top priority for Matthews Cotswold Flour. Putting more back into the environment than we're taking out and ensuring that our food doesn't cost the earth.
We work to minimise disturbance to the soil and maximise crop diversity, integrating grazing livestock and encouraging deep root growth to deliver maximum nutrients to crops.
Farm-Ed is a local not-for-profit partner of ours, who specialise in educating and inspiring people on all things agroecological! Based at Honeydale Farm, a picturesque 107 acre mixed farm in the Cotswolds, they are just two minutes away from our mill.
As part of your prize you will get to tour the farm and enjoy a regenerative lunch at the FarmEd cafe. If you're passionate about building a better environment and eating great food, FarmEd is not to be missed!
