Shop Local: Flour Mill

As you may have noticed, supporting local producers is something I feel very strongly about.  So I was very excited to have some time go and visit our local flour mill, Talgarth Mill

- Dedication and hard work of local residents -

 

A few years ago Talgarth Mill received a lottery grant of  £500,000.  This, along with the dedication and hard work of local residents, saw its restoration.  Within a matter of months, The Bakers' Table, the mills cafe, started to win awards for the quality of its produce....you can see why

Guided tours weren't running the day we visited so we opted to take a look around by ourselves, we were even able to manually grind a small amount of flour

Each and every bag of flour made at Talgarth Mill is hand packed by local volunteers

- The gardens are stunning -

 

At the back of the mill the hard work continues, with beautifully landscaped gardens set alongside the river Ellywe.  Hidden amongst the greenery are some beautifully crafted wrought iron structures

If you are ever in the area, it is definitely worth a visit....maybe even take home your own bread kit
