About the Producer Oatmeal of Alford is produced at Montgarrie Mill, Alford, in the heart of Aberdeenshire in the rich agricultural lands of Northeast Scotland. There has been a mill at Montgarrie since Jacobite times, and the present one, an impressive grey granite building, dates back to 1880. Also dating back to that time is the waterwheel which, driven by the Esset water, powers the mill. This wheel is indeed a piece of Scotland's engineering heritage, and it's as effective today as it was in 1880. The Master Miller, Donald MacDonald, mills as his great grandfather, and generations before him, did. He uses the best Scottish oats, which are renowned for their superior quality due to the extra hours of daylight in Scotland. It is this highly specialized process which makes the flavor of the oatmeal unique. It is packed and dispatched to bring you its traditional, crisp and nutty texture and flavor. The public has recognized oatmeal as one of the healthiest foods of today. It is one of the most nutritious of all cereals, it is a valuable source of natural soluble fiber and it is important for its folic acid content.

Their flavor can be attributed to the final drying process, which takes place in an old fashioned 'flat kiln', which is believed to be the only one of its kind used in Britain today.
