The homeland of the Dyk-Mill
The Woodquarter

In this charmed region - where there is little traffic and almost no industry - meadows, woodlands, and rich fields form the landscape. Here the earth, water, and air are still unspoiled. This is likely the reason why the majority of Austrias’ organic farmers feel at home in this land.

The milling tradition of the Dyk family can be traced back to 1881 and has been passed on from generation to generation. In 1881 Anton Dyk (Lisa´s great-great-grandfather) bought the old mill from the rule in Raabs.  In 1970 Peter Dyk (mechanical engineer and miller) and his wife Lydia took over the management of the flour mill.  Due to their active research and development activities with useful innovations, is the reason, why the mill in Raabs escaped the “mills exitus” at the beginning of the 90’s and produces and markets special products until now.

In August 2002, their daughter Lisa Dyk return home to her parents' business, due to the flood disaster. The plan was to help with the clean-up for a month, but concerning the excellent cooperation with her parents and the committed employees, she decided to stay at the mill in Raabs. In 2005 Lisa Dyk took over the management of the mill.


Developments and products

In the early 70’s the organic pioneer Peter Dyk developed a revolutionary new milling process, which allows the gentle processing of wholemeal flour, while at the same time preserving it for months (further information). The Dyk-Mill was also the first company that milled grain from controlled organic farming.

Based on this new milling procedure the Compact Milling System (CMS) was developed. This unique short-milling system is being installed ready for operation in two containers. The special features are the low investment costs, the extremely simple handling, the possibility of milling different types of grain with one and the same system and the mobility.

In 1990 the Dyk-Mill invested in the first extruder and this was the beginning for the development of a number of new product ranges. Different kinds of swell-flour are being produced for the baking industry (further information: baking additives) and also a delicious variety of organic snacks (further information: snacks).

Today the Dyk-Mill represents a modern and sustainable company that produces a wide range of innovative products, runs a milling research facility and expands in international trade relations.
