New Harvester Milling Wheat is only available as part of our January 2020 Miller's Box selection of grists for home milling as we have very limited grain available from the 2019 harvest.

New Harvester is a late 19th century variety of wheat, probably one of the first improved selections for bread wheat.

Our New Harvester is grown at Hulver Farm in Suffolk by Paul Watkin and his son Tobias. As their main interest is in thatching straw (this wheat grows well over a meter tall), with the grain a by-product, the wheat is cut with a reaper-binder rather than a combine harvester (which would also thresh the grain out) so as not to damage the straw. The binder ties the cut wheat into sheaves which are then stacked or 'shocked' into stooks in the field to dry.

Once dry, Paul and Tobias use an early 20th century Ransome's threshing machine, powered by a traction engine, to gently separate the grain from the straw - see it in action!

This crop of New Harvester was threshed at Brampton Plough Day, which is held just over the road from our Bean Store.
