The Working Watermill Shop

Bake the perfect loaf with some organic Dunster Watermill flour. There's been a mill here since Domesday and we mill here every week. If that doesn’t take your fancy how about some Dunster Watermill porridge or even a bag of muesli, made to our secret recipe. The shop also stocks a range of other products, souvenirs and gifts. 

We are currently testing a recipe for a luxury christmas cake using our own stoneground spelt flour, we'll share the recipe as soon as we've tested the results!
