The mill produces a range of stoneground Organic flours. All of our wheat flour is milled on a pair of French Burr Stones and some is then sieved in a traditional bolter (or wire-machine) to produce white flour, brown flour, semolina flour and bran. Some of our brown wheatflour is blended with whole malted wheat flakes to produce "Malted Wheatflake Flour". Our wheat flours are ground from Organic wheat, (Certification UK5) and are high in gluten, making them ideal for breadmaking, particularly in bread-machines.
We also produce organic rye flour, which is lower in gluten and produces a darker, denser bread, popular with European bakers. Our Wholemeal and White wheat flours have received awards in the 2001 and 2002 Organic Foods Awards respectively. These awards are run jointly by the Soil Association and The Mail on Sunday's "You" Magazine, and are designed to recognise excellence in Organic food production and processing.
Our latest produce is Organic Spelt Flour. Spelt is an ancient variety of wheat with a delicious, nutty flavour. Although high in protein, it is sometimes suitable for people with an intolerance to gluten. We produce wholemeal organic spelt flour that will bake a highly nutritious loaf, full of flavour.
Flour can be bought from the mill shop on open-days, and flour and bread are available at Harpenden, Hertford, Hatfield and St. Albans Farmers' Markets, as well as at local shops. Local delivery is usually possible.
Some of the flour produced at the mill is used in the mill's own bakery, where it is baked into a range of Artisan loaves.
Redbournbury Mill lies 2 miles north of St. Albans (in Hertfordshire, 20 miles north of London) on the old Roman road, Watling Street, in the hamlet of Redbournbury. Built beside the River Ver (which gave St. Albans its Roman name, Verulamium), a tributary of the River Colne which itself flows into the Thames. Although only a stone's throw from the main road it remains an unspoilt area, little changed for hundreds of years. The farmhouse and surrounding buildings at the end of the lane date back to the fifteenth century which, together with the mill, create an area of historical interest. The "Ver Valley Walk", public footpath from the river's source to its confluence with the Colne, and "Views of the Ver Valley Walk", a circular walk around Redbournbury, run past the mill.
Last used for milling in the 1950's, the mill is at the end of a massive rebuilding and restoration project, which took over ten years to complete. It is now established as a museum and as the only working mill on the River Ver.
