Wind Milling heritage wheat
We grind our heritage wheat at Oldland windmill Keymer in Sussex wind allowing. Unfortunately like most mills Oldland has 'lost' a lot of its wind because of neighbouring development. It is a beautiful fully restored working windmill built in 1700 and restored meticulously over many years by the enthusiastic voluteers of the Oldland Mill Trust. It is really wonderful to be grinding our wheats at a mill like this as these are the types of wheat the mill was built to grind. We grow Old Kent Red, Kent Hoary, Chidham Red wheats which are local varieties that would have been grown widely during the mills hey day. There is something wonderful about these machines as they seem to come alive when working and when you think of it have a really low carbon footprint .
