In life, sometimes the answer to our problems lays in the past.
(profoundly deep there Josh, atta boy)
With COVID clearing out the “essential” baking stuff we need like yeast and flour, one town in the U.K. had to get creative!
Dorset is home to the Sturminister Newton Mill, which has been in existence since 1060.
Locals had noticed the amount of flour was getting smaller and smaller week by week and decided to take some charge!
They re-opened the mill, which has been closed since 1970, and have been mulling grain since.
It’s not a quick process by any means, it takes the mil a day to produce 66 pounds of bread flour. Doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is for a small town!
To date they’ve delivered 200 3.3 pound bags of flour to local shops and bakeries, so all the sweets and bread can continue to be baked.
If there’s a point to this?
IF WE HAVE A GRAIN HOPPER IN SIMCOE, LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN Y’ALL.
