Overview

19 September 2021 (11:00-17:00) Orkney Bere is an ancient form of barley,
with a unique appearance and taste, grown and milled in Orkney for over 300
years. 100% natural, it is perfect for baking bannocks, scones and biscuits.
The flour produced is called beremeal. The present Mill was built in 1873 and
has changed little since. Remains of older mills are adjacent awaiting
restoration. Like most northern mills of this period, a kiln for drying the
grain is integral with the building. For Doors Open Days you can enjoy free
tours of Orkney's last water mill and home of Orkney Beremeal since 1893. Shop
