windmills Mount Pleasant windmill business is booming

Mount Pleasant windmill produces organic flour, and bakes it into bread on site. With a tonne of flour, and 500 loaves a week, business is booming, thanks to internet orders, and the owners are employing two twentysomethings as a miller and a baker to keep up with demand.

Since buying the mill for £375,000 in 1999, and spending a further £30,000 on renovations, Mervyn Austin, the owner who himself has 30 years of experience in the baking industry, has been familiarising himself with the equipment, and techniques needed to produce the 10 different flours the mill sells. These are turned into 15 different types of bread, currently baked in 2 batches a week, but expecting to be produced daily with the new baker working full time.
