Bere is an ancient form of barley, with a unique appearance and taste, grown and milled in Orkney for over 300 years. 100% natural, it is perfect for baking bannocks, scones and biscuits.
The present Mill was built in 1873, and has changed little since. Remains of older mills are adjacent awaiting restoration. Like most northern mills of this period, a kiln for drying the grain is integral with the building.
Grinding is done in the winter; during summer, the Mill is open to the public and the running of the machinery is demonstrated by the miller.
Meal is available for sale for home use and for commercial bakers.
