Hammonds End Farm http://www.hammondsendfarm.co.uk

Contact details:- firstname.lastname@example.org
Many Guild mills buy direct from local or specialist farms, who grow grain to meet individual requirements.
If you are a grain farmer interested in working with your local mill or with the Guild as a whole please get in touch – we’re also interested in heritage grain and older varieties like the long strawed Maris Widgeon so favoured by thatchers. Many of our members mill relatively small quantities, so even the odd tonne or two is of interest.
