Hill Top Farm is in the North York Moors National Park. We produce organic lamb and cereals. In 2005 we started to mill locally grown wheat on the farm in order to preserve its distinctive taste and identity. Our goal as organic farmers is to produce high quality food in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible way. We do this in practice by sourcing locally grown organic wheat from neighbouring producers and marketing it locally.
By milling local produce we minimise “food miles”, reduce transport costs and are able to create mutually beneficial trading networks with farmers and producers.
The enterprise is entirely organic. We can therefore guarantee wholesome, high quality produce to our customers.
Grain is cleaned before milling using a traditional aspirated seed cleaner that removes dust, chaff and other light material whilst separating grains by size through a series of reciprocating sieves. If necessary, further separation into lighter and heavier fractions can be achieved using a gravity table.
All flour is stone-milled. The mills are unique in the UK. Designed and built by “Aster”, Brittany, the granite stones are dressed in such a way that they are able to mill and mix the germ and the inner layers of the bran with the rest of the flour, thereby retaining the maximum nutritional value of the whole grain.
