As well as being a wonderful tourist attraction, Pakenham Water Mill really is a working mill producing high-quality wholemeal flour that is used by chefs and artisan bakers and people who enjoy baking their own bread at home, either by hand or with a bread machine.
Because Pakenham flour is milled slowly to a soft consistency it produces a surprisingly light wholemeal loaf, still retaining the nutritional advantages of wholemeal wheat. It can also be used in scones, cakes, crumbles and other items, perhaps with the addition of a little white flour. The choice is yours!
The mill has always sold top quality stone ground wholemeal flour and we are now producing two more varieties. These are wholemeal spelt flour and wholemeal rye flour. All these are milled from grain sourced locally and are available at the mill or from our various local outlets.
You can buy our flour:
