I’ve been making sourdough bread at home for over 4 years and am now interested in milling my own wheat fresh for each bake. Do you sell wheat through retailer in Bundaberg and if not can I order it online?

try Bundaberg Organic & Quality Foods in Steptoe St 0403 430 969. They are our retailers in the area. In my experience they are very helpful.
If they can’t order some in for you then I recommend an online search for buying the Kialla Organic Wheat Grain as some online retailers may be able to distribute to the area.
Currently we don’t sell directly online. However, this may happen in the new future so stay in touch.

This post hits on where I am trying to head.
I wish to purchase either milled wheat using a non mass production wheat grown without chemicals (organic?) or alternatively the straight grain itself.
The problem with the smaller millers is that it is just way too expensive to make one’s own bread as the product is out of reach. Purchase DIRECT from the producer/growr would likely bridge that gap.
Can you suggest a smaller producer who could fill that requirement as I’d absolutely love to get away from buying the old preservative infested out of the freezer rubbish they call ‘bread’.

If you want wheat grown without chemicals then yes you need to seek out organic wheat. And if you want to buy organic wheat directly from the farmer than you need to be present at harvest time and ask him if you can buy a bag from him – but unless he is set up to sell small batches off the farm, all the wheat will go straight from the harvester to the truck and be taken to the silos for storage or to the mills like ourselves. I suggest that you try a search online to see if any farmers sell off the farm.
You will then need to sort the grain for small stones, weeds and seeds etc, which we do with our equipment at the mill – but you can certainly sift through by hand and eye if you’re just buying a few kilos.
We do sell wheat grain in various size bags through our retailers or distributors. It is grown by farmers who use certified organic processes (farmers are audited as are we, by Australian Certified Organic).
