Our field to loaf day celebrates the bread making tradition that started on Compagnes Drift Farm in the late 1780’s. Please join us in experiencing every aspect of this ancient process - from the wheat harvest and grain milling, to when the loaves of bread come out of the traditional wood fired oven.
Saturday 12th December 2015
10am at the old mill on Beaumont Family Wines
Expect a tractor ride to the wheat fields, where a harvest demonstration using scythes and sickles and an 80 year old combine harvester will take place.
Once the harvest is complete we will show you how the grain is converted into flour in the Vitruvian mill. This flour will be kneaded into dough and baked in our wood fired “Broodoond”.
Sit back and relax on the lawns listening to the 230 year old mill at work.
Wine will be available to taste and to buy.
Homemade lemonades and sparking granadilla juice will also be available.
Delicious food from food stalls will be served by Zest
Bread coming out of the oven will be available for sale.
We hope to share this unique day with you
