Who Are Doves Farm and What Do We Do

Based on the Wiltshire/Berkshire border, Doves Farm Foods was established in 1978 by Michael and Clare Marriage.

Being dedicated to the organic movement we have had Soil Association approval since we were founded. Flour milling and cereal processing make up the core of the company’s products which are produced for industrial users as well as the building blocks for the home baking range.

We produce a wide range of specialist and gourmet flours that are milled from a range of grains and seeds, with a variety of tastes and textures, Doves Farm flours have a unique character. The home baking flour range offers 21 different flours with some suitable for those on gluten free, wheat free, diabetic, or other special diets. In addition to our home baking range we can now supply our flours in bulk.

The majority of Doves Farm products are Organic, all are vegetarian, quite a few are vegan and several of the company's products are also suitable for those on gluten free, wheat free, or diabetic diets. We’ve also launched a range of Fair Trade products. Many years expertise with cereal based foods enabled us to add breakfast cereals, cookies, baking requisites, sweet and savory biscuits as well as cakes and bread to our range of products and all the products found under the Doves Farm label are based upon grains and cereals or complimentary to them.

Milling

Our BRC approved, modern mill houses eight sets of mill stones, a roller mill plant, pearling equipment and a separate mill dedicated to gluten free flour processing. More than 50 types of flour are produced and packed into 1kg and 1.5kg packs for the retail market and various types of sack for professional bakers and industrial flour users.

Baking

Dedicated to organic production and where possible using Fairtrade ingredients our bakery does not use hydrogenated fats or enzymes. Gluten and wheat free cookies are produced in a separate bakery using the traditional wire-cut method and baked on specially lined trays.

Cereal processing

We prepare and transform grains such as buckwheat, rice, maize, rye, rice, spelt, kamut into breakfast cereals, cakes, bread, pasta and a wealth of other foods. Grains are complex carbohydrates which form an important part of our diet so its no wonder that we all enjoy them in so many different ways.
