Shipton Mill is the home of organic flour in the UK. From more bees and hedgerows to ensuring shorter, traceable more sustainable food chains, by choosing organic we can all support a kinder, greener and better environment.
The promotion of organic food is set deep within the ethos that drives Shipton Mill. We source grain as locally as possible from certified organic producers.
Using organic flour not only helps to contribute to biodiversity by maintaining varieties of wheat/cereals but also to the general wildlife populations where organic production methods encourage a greater variety and number of species.
In the UK organic producers are certified by the Soil Association, a body recognised world-wide as adhering to the strictest standards.We select only the best parcels of grain to give the fullest flavour and outstanding baking results.
Organic farms support 50% more wildlife, with 30% more species – that's more birds, bees, butterflies, beetles, bats and wildflowers. A small change can make a surprisingly large difference - the average family eats enough bread in a year that if just 12 families make the small change to swap their bread flour to organic, an area of organic land a quarter of the size of the Wembley Stadium football pitch would be a haven for wildlife.
In addition the consumer can be assured there are no residues in the product as there is growing concern over the “cocktail” effect of residues in food. Although chemical residues may be at permitted levels, the cumulative and/or compound effects are proving a cause for alarm.
The growing of foods without the excessive application of potentially harmful chemicals and fertilizers, and without carbon based energy sources has to be of significant global benefit.
