growing your rolled oats
The rich, fertile & expansive soils of South Eastern Australia and Western Victoria are a prime growing environment for our varieties of milling oats.
managing a healthy crop
Blue Lake Milling's grain buyers work closely with Australian cereal growers to ensure the production of high quality grain starts at the very beginning of the journey; from the paddock through to the rolled oats in your bowl.
what we look for in healthy oats
Only superior oat varieties are selected for their taste & nutritional qualities. These grains flourish in the growing conditions & also offer a greater range of milling options.
good soil, clean environment
The clean air of the regions of south east SA and western Vic are ideal conditions for producing plump oats. It also makes for a healthy environment for the loyal growers dedicated to the region's high quality cropping.
transporting oats from farm to mill
Blue Lake Milling employs a fleet of local & interstate transport operators to deliver oats into our production site for the first step of the milling process. Each vehicle is weighed in & incoming grain quality checks are conducted to ensure that the oats meet strict quality guidelines.
delivery of grain
The vehicles deliver the grain into the large silos at the mill.
storage of grain prior to milling
After delivery the oats are stored, still in their husk, within large silos that protect them from moisture, dust and pests.
All of our products are thoroughly tested in our internal laboratory to ensure they meet the quality parameters.
the grain milling process
The raw oat is dehulled, cleaned, steamed, rolled & packaged during the manufacturing process. Blue Lake Milling employees are trained to closely monitor every step of the process so that our customers can be assured of the highest quality.
storage & distribution of our oats
The final product is stored in our warehouse for distribution to our customers both in Australia and abroad. Products are carefully prepared and loaded for transport to destinations far and wide.
