They are another one of our local suppliers as their apples are grown and their juice is bottled on a farm in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. It is a family run business which has been operating for over 20 years.

We all know that the modern Mothering Sunday is the celebration of the maternal characters in our lives such as mums, step-mums and grandmothers. We often shower them with gifts and special days out, but the holiday was not always celebrated in this way. Treat your mum to a day at Jordans Mill!

I used to be cabin crew for Ryanair from 1999 to 2016. I flew quite a few famous people like Prince Harry, Mr Motivator, Chris Akabusi, Ken Doherty and the boxer, Steve Collins. When I was younger I was in the Girl’s Brigade and I used to play the Snare Drum. I was also a member of the Modernian’s Swimming Club.
William Jordan 6th (Bill)
The most recent business at Holme Mills was run by William Jordan 6th (Bill) and his brother David. Bill served his milling apprenticeship at Henry Simon Ltd and also spent time travelling. He played drums for a French rock band and then travelled to America where he discovered the phenomenon of granola. He brought this knowledge back to the UK and joined forces with his brother, creating the famous cereal brand, Jordans.
