Milling and Provenance

The wheat to make Churchill needs to be of high protein strength to ensure its consistency when baking. We test all of the wheat before accepting any load into the mill. Each load is collected from one of our local Cotswold Grain Partnership farmers and delivered to the mill. During harvest, this can mean driving straight onto the field and down the hill to the Cotswold mill. The wheat is stored in our 100-year-old pine grain silos before being finely roller milled into a strong white bread flour for home baking or professional artisan bakers around the UK.

Top Tip

Churchill has a higher water absorption than standard strong white flour you find in the supermarket. The gluten quality in Churchill flour comes from the two main proteins in bread flour “Glutenin” which creates elasticity and chewiness and “Gliadin” which helps support a better rise.

Did you know

This flour is named after a local village Churchill, only a few miles from the mill. The grain is grown on the surrounding hills and the flour is then used to make sourdough bread in the surrounding local bakeries. It was chosen as the number one flour for sourdough baking by master bakers. And the Cotswold Sourdough loaf is served up in the local village pub “The Chequers Churchill” - always a starter for the Matthews family during visits!
