Our light buckwheat flour is milled from whole buckwheat groats with the hulls sieved out. It's ideal for traditional Brittany crêpes or galettes, buckwheat pancakes served with sweet or savoury fillings.
The organic British buckwheat used to produce this flour is grown on three organic farms in Northumberland. The flour is milled for us by Maple Farm at Kelsale in Suffolk.
Buckwheat Flour has a distinctive nutty flavour and is traditionally used to make Breton pancakes.
Use alone, or mix with other flours to make pancakes, waffles, cakes, pastries and biscuits.

Buckwheat, Fagopyrum esculentum, is a member of the rhubarb family. Known in France as sarrasin, it's also called black wheat on account of its dark outer husk. Unlike wheat, buckwheat is not a member of the grass family and is therefore, like quinoa, a pseudocereal rather than true cereal.
Split Fava Beans are tasty, versatile and easy to cook - they don’t even need soaking.
Use our Organic Split Fava Beans to make dal, falafel or hummus - or add a handful or more to soups, stews or curries. The beans get softer and softer the longer they're cooked.
Or try our new Fava Bean Chips - they're cheaper than Split Fava Beans and cook just the same only a little faster.View full product details
Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.
Our current crop of whole fava beans are the unusually small, round and wonderfully tender Maris Bead variety, bred over 50 years ago at the Plant Breeding Institute on Maris Lane near Cambridge. Whether they're cooked from dry or used canned, we think these are our best ever whole fava.
