Milling and Provenance: We have been milling our farmhouse wholemeal flour for over 100 years. In that time, we have kept to the belief that a true wholemeal is made from 100% of the wheat berry. Nothing more, nothing less. We source our high protein English wheat from our local Cotswold grain partnership and collect direct into the mill before conditioning in our 100-year-old pine conditioning bins.

Did you know: Farmhouse wholemeal is named “Farmhouse” after its traditional rustic-looking loaves. Wholemeal flour is not the same everywhere some mills may sift out some of the nutritious bran before bagging it up. At Matthews Wholemeal means wholegrain, wholewheat 100% of the wheat in the flour.

Wholemeal baking tips: 1: Add more liquid when baking with wholemeal flour as the flour will absorb more. 2: Blend with Churchill or stoneground white for lighter loaves. 3: Don’t worry about mixing with wholemeal flour as the bran cuts the gluten strands allowing baked goods to rise.

Did you know? Wholegrain flours are high dietary fibre.

About Matthews Cotswold


With a milling legacy spanning eight generations, Matthews Cotswold Flour is one of the UK’s oldest family-run flour mills. Trading grain and milling flour in the heart of the Cotswolds since the 1800s. We believe passionately that our local farming partnerships, traditional milling methods and premium grain selection make for better baking.

Generations of farming families

The Matthews Cotswold Flour story began when the original FWP (Frederick) Matthews built a mill on the river Evenlode in 1912. You’ll find us working here to this day, overlooking the picturesque Cotswold village of Shipton-Under-Wychwood. It’s not a bad office view!

The Matthews family have spent over 100 years developing, improving and innovating to consistently produce the very best flour and baking products. Today, the company is led by father and son team Paul and Bertie Matthews – FWP Matthews’ great, great grandsons. This sustained passion and expertise passed down through generations, continues to inform every step of our process – from our local ethos to our traditional methods.


To keep this flour at its very best never let the flour become damp. Store in a cool, dry place, allow good air circulation.
