I fell in love with the idea of grinding flour by hand when we were talking about doing it. I still love the final product, and the food we have produced from it. I love the fact that it uses no electricity. I have to warn anyone considering this though... It is NOT easy. 12 cups of ground flour takes circa 2hrs (for an unfit guy like me anyway), and a good few liters of water to keep me hydrated. Would I agree to it again? Yes, but for me the food value of fresh ground four is more important than the energy saving. Consider a good electric mill first, then get yourself a hand cranked jobbie as a later project.

delicious homemade flour and breadOnce again, before living at treetops, we hadn't given much thought to homemade flour. But, over time, we came to realise that flour was going to play a part in our journey towards self sufficiency. Our first step in the journey was to switch from white flour to whole grain flour. At the time, our motivation was to improve the nutritional quality of our food. Story over, or so we thought!
