Naked barley is back - and now it's kibbled too! Our new batch of naked barley is from a superb crop of the Oak Ruby variety, bred by Edward Dickin and grown by his father Jeremy Dickin at Oak Farm in Lincolnshire. Kibbling breaks up the grain so it cooks more quickly to a lighter, fluffier finish.

Long before we ate modern wheat, naked barley sustained us. Well suited to our climate, Bronze Age farmers would be very familiar with this nutritious, malty cereal. Unlike most barley, where the inedible husk is tightly stuck to the grain, the husks fall off the naked barley grain when it's harvested and threshed, leaving the tasty and nutritious whole grain intact and ready to cook or mill. 

The kibbled grains can be cooked and added to salads or served as a side dish, or milled to a finer flour at home (we recommend using a table-top Mockmill) for flavoursome and nutritious flour.
