Here at the Fresh Flour company, we partner with organic farmers and pay them a decent amount for their grain – four to five times the market rate – so they can tend the soil and environment, without fear of survival. We mill this grain using one of our stone mills. We then take this product, within a short amount of time, and make it into Pasta, Noodles, Crackers, Digestives and Bran Flakes, capturing a greater amount of nutritional value. We use Ancient and heritage and interesting wheats, as they are better for us and for the biodiversity.
We make “Everyday products, brilliantly” to make the grain system work – for agricultural people.
We also work in a socially conscious manner, by offering all our products loose - saving on packaging, environmentally and economically - direct from the mill and through 'to good to go’, 'the Mazi project’ and 'food in community’. That way we can offer high quality products to a wide range of socioeconomic groups.
What are we trying to achieve?
1. Grow interesting, (heritage, or population) grain, at an appropriate scale, that isn't overbreed.
2. Grow grain in the presence of sunshine NOT, as is the norm, in the presence of oil. (Natural not synthetic. There is NO second way)
3. Pay farmers a sustainable wage to do the job they love.
4. Pass on to the consumer the whole goodness that the grain holds. (Fresh Flour).

Our ambition is that by 2026, 50% of public money spent on food and drink in the South West will be spent directly with small and medium sized producers based in the region.
To achieve this, we are working with the government’s Crown Commercial Service to deliver the Future Food Framework, which is a new dynamic approach to public sector food procurement that will help small and medium sized producers in the region to sell directly to public sector institutions.
The South West Food Hub is supporting the region’s food network to buy local and establish shorter and more sustainable supply chains. We work across the South West’s food sector, focusing primarily on public procurement.

We believe in good food for everybody – it is as simple as that!
Our fantastic suppliers and growers provide us with a full range of fruit, vegetables, cheese, milk, yoghurts, meats, fish, hand-made bread and pastries. As much as possible this is grown or made locally; some of which you won’t find for sale anywhere else. Of course, to provide a good array year-round, we rely on sourcing more widely too.
We also stock store-cupboard ingredients – herbs and spices, flours, pulses, oils and all sorts of interesting tasty treats.
Our aim is to minimise transportation, packaging and the use of chemical pest- and herbicides involved in the produce we offer. Some of our staples are organic as standard!
We love plants! We have a seasonal stock of shrubs, trees, herbaceous perennials, herbs and annual plants.
It changes frequently so please stop in to see what is looking good. We can source for your specific requirements and have a wealth of gardening and growing knowledge.
We use only Devon nurseries.
We also stock loose compost, kindling, firewood and a range of locally made crafts.
