Montfort Mühle goes Stelzenmühle:
The small and family run Montfort Mühle in Langenargen was mostly my source for the flour of my bread. Unfortunately the mill needs an overhaul but due to lack of funds they stopped the mill. A college stepped in also from the region the Stelzenmühle. A sad story wich shows how hard it is to survive with “products” which need taste and understanding for a higher price as from a discounter. Already the amount of small bakerys in my area dropped to two, which was around ten only 20 years ago.
Even knowing that the mill is out of service I decided to ride my bike for about 12km one way to load my bigger Swiss Army Backpack with 20kg of flour. I think it is important to support this small run business.
It was worth it check out the result from this fine flour – what a loaf of bread!
You are right, support your local dealer. It is difficult finding good flour ( I don’t even know a mill in the region) and even harder finding a good old backery…:-(
