The first ever British-grown organic chia seeds!
These versatile and nutritious seeds are delicious sprinkled on salads, added to smoothies or in baking. They make a great vegan egg replacement too.
Organically grown by John and Alice Pawsey in Suffolk, with guidance from chia pioneers Peter and Andrew Fairs, these chia seeds are the result of five years of crop trials and developments. The tiny oil-rich seeds are harvested from the Salvia hispanica plant, a member of the mint family originating in central America, where chia was a staple food in Aztec cultures, alongside beans and corn.
Sprinkle on salads, use in baking, add to smoothies, porridge or granola.

Whole wheat grains for cooking whole or to use as a grist for home milling. (Looking for Flanders Wheat Flour instead?)
Once popular with millers and bakers, Flanders is quite unlike any other British wheat, being soft but with good bread making qualities.
Flanders is a winter-sown medium-straw wheat, grown in Britain in the 1970s and 80s but now almost extinct.
Our Flanders wheat is grown by Jeremy Dickin at Oak Farm in Lincolnshire.
Wheat is one of the most common foods but whole wheat grains – or wheatberries – are rarely used. But they're a versatile, tasty and nutritious ingredient with the full flavour of wheat, whole or freshly milled.
To cook as a whole grain: Rinse, bring to the boil, then simmer until tender (about 45 minutes). Speed up cooking by pre-soaking for a few hours.

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 wholegrain ready to use.
The grains can be cooked and eaten whole, or milled at home (we recommend using a Mockmill) for flavoursome and nutritious flour.
Add cooked naked barley - or if cooking time allows, dry grains - to soups, stews and casseroles.
Add cooked or toasted grains to salads.
Mill uncooked naked barley grains to produce a tasty and versatile flour.
Rinse, bring to the boil then simmer until tender (about 45 minutes). Speed up cooking by pre-soaking for a few hours.

Whole organic wheat grain from the revolutionary YQ population, grown at Home Farm, Nacton, Suffolk.
YQ wheat grains can be cooked and eaten whole, or milled at home (we recommend using a Mockmill) for flavoursome and nutritious flour.
The YQ (Yield and Quality) wheat population was bred at Wakelyns Agroforestry by Professor Martin Wolfe and the Organic Research Centre. The population is a crop of extraordinary diversity that's emerged over time from a wide range of carefully chosen parent varieties, leading to fields of millions of genetically distinct individual wheat plants rather than the usual genetically uniform monocultures.View full product details
