Welcome to Shipton Mill, the home of regenerative organic flour

Our flours are for all bakers and cooks, united by their passion for good foods.

New Heritage Flours

We mill a wide range of flours originating from many different cultures & geographic regions, discovering fascinating flavours and varieties. Heritage wheats are rooted in cultural contexts spanning thousands of years, with seeds passed down from generation to generation.

We are working with small growers to rebuild local grain economies and reconnect us to stories long forgotten. Agricultural biodiversity and small–scale, family-based food production systems are vulnerable throughout the world, so we hope to make a positive difference by rediscovering Heritage grains and putting them back on the table.

Solina is a historically cultivated landrace in the Abruzzo region (central Italy) which has adapted over the centuries to thrive on mountainous terrain.

Our Philosophy

We started Shipton Mill in 1979, to mill flours from the most fantastic grains, working from day one with like-minded farmers who promote biodiversity and who value and seek to look after the soil.

A key part of the miller’s work is the selection of the very best grains, working alongside nature and what the climate and seasons can offer and using their skills to grind and blend those varieties providing bakers with consistently excellent and reliable results.
