About Gilchester Organics
Andrew undertook a major on farm research project into organic cereal production from 2003 to 2006 in conjunction with Newcastle University, which resulted in the establishment of their flour mill in 2006. Sybille, born and raised in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, is no stranger to quality breads with Germany’s strong bread heritage.
Andrew and Sybille were pioneers in the re-establishment of old cereal varieties into UK organic agriculture during this time and have specialised from the start in the production of spelt, Emmer, Einkorn and heritage wheats for baking flours with outstanding flavours and texture.
These varieties are at the heart of the milling business at Gilchesters, producing baking quality grains on the farm in Northumberland.
