It started with a vision of a small charming shop with a comfortable apartment upstairs. Tracey Pritchard, a former Toronto caterer, food writer, restauranteur and consultant spent years looking for the right spot for a bakery/food shop and place to collaborate with her daughter Alex.
Small became big when Tracey’s son Nick, a Toronto-based realtor, found 6 Water Street, a 150 year old heritage building and former flour mill in the heart of downtown St. Marys, Ontario, a short drive from the family’s former farm. Inspired, Tracey’s family began the design and revitalization plan that would restore the property to its original integrity and beauty.
The Flour Mill Shop is the hub of the Mill, located at the north end of the building and is home to Tracey’s business Perfect Pastry along with The Farm Juice Co., owned and operated by Tracey’s daughter Alex. Rooted in family values, the Flour Mill Shop curates a selection of unique products and experiences with a focus on integrity and personal service.
