The Healthy Option – Nothing Added, Nothing Taken Away

The philosophy for The Little Mill is simple: nothing added, nothing taken away. The grain is sourced locally and our milling process which uses a series of mill stones, means that the entire wholegrain is used. So unlike refined flours it retains all of its nutritional goodness, B & E vitamins, antioxidants, fibre, protein, minerals and healthy oils. The Little Mill Flours contain no additives, no preservatives but what it does have is a unique flavour profile. A slightly nutty taste which is generated from the warming of the wheat during the stoneground milling process.

It’s in the genes - The Mosses know a thing or two about flour!

The Mosse’s know their flour, it’s in their genes. Stretching back seven generations, the family have been milling on the banks of the river Nore in Co. Kilkenny. When you have been handling, milling and selecting wheat for that long, you are not only knowledgeable but passionate about it.

Sustainability

The company is also working with growers to become more sustainable by using bio fuels such as miscanthus to dry the wheat before milling. The company is also proud to be contributing to a vibrant rural community by employing people at its mill and blending business in the heart of rural Kilkenny.
