Over a Century Providing for Professional, Home and Micro Bakers
The Matthews family history spans over 200 years from the farm in Oxfordshire. Since building the mill in 1912, today we're supplying Britain’s best bakers from a regenerative farming system. The mill is still run and owned by the 8th generation of Matthews in the Cotswold village of Shipton-Under-Wychwood. Our vision is to create baking products that enhance taste, nutrition, understanding and experience with regenerative agriculture.
The Top 1%
We mill only the top 1% specification of grain for a top-quality premium product, and we work closely with farmers to ensure our bakers only get the best flour - milled with care and passion. The grain is milled by our fantastic milling team who work. Although most of our grains are sourced from the UK, we have a close relationship with our French and Italian milling partners to ensure easy import for our customers.
1st Class Delivery
We pride ourselves on being with you for every step in your journey - right into your bakery! Our dedicated transport team will personally deliver your flour and will even help carry it into the bakery, the only thing they don’t do is bake the bread for you! We typically use our own delivery lorries and vans, driven by teams who are just as passionate about the product as you are, so you can count on your flour arriving on time and in one piece, delivered with a smile.
