Grain

What makes our grains special?

We research the various varieties of grains that are available from farms here in the UK and elsewhere. We test the grains for flavour and baking characteristics to find the finest quality varieties of grain. We discover and test recipes and pass those recipes on to our customers. We take grain that has been cleaned to industry standards, and clean them even more than is required. We specialize in grains that are not genetically modified, not exposed to modern chemicals and additives, and are grown in an environmentally friendly way. We package our grains in heavy duty 8KG buckets that can withstand courriers without split bags and other contamination. For instance our supreme naked oats are raw sproutable oat groats that provides the highest quality raw oats that can be found. We also offer the option of packaging with oxygen absorbers to remove oxygen from the buckets to prevent the growth of anything in your grain that you don't want to be there. When we first starting selling stone mills in the UK, grain was not available anywhere else so we had to offer grain in order to sell mills. Now we try to provide the best grain with the best service and with the best varieties for home milling. Now we offer the option of grain for longer term storage with oxygen absorbers.

 

Oats

Oats are now officially recognized in new EU labeling legislation (2009) as gluten free if they are free from contamination with wheat. Our Premium oat groats have been lab tested and certified gluten free. Our oats are whole oat groats from the north of the UK that have had the husk removed but have not flaked or milled the grains which exposes them to the air. They are not sproutable (See our naked oats below which are raw and sproutable). We offer them as standard and premium. The premium oats have been grown with an increased sensitivity to the environment. All of our oats are full of flavour and still have the healthy oils in the soft soluble bran. These oats will make the most gorgeous porridge or muesli you can imagine.

Spelt

Spelt is an ancient grain mentioned in the Bible as a separate grain from wheat. Although it is related to wheat, it has become popular again because so many people that are wheat intolerant have found that they can eat spelt. Our spelt is sourced in Hertfordshire and has been tested for bread and other baking. This crop is one of the better crops in recent years. We provide several recipes with the spelt when you purchase a mill. Spelt makes great scones, pancakes and general baking. It is an extremely nutritious and digestible grain.

Yellow Maize

Yellow maize (called corn in the USA) is generally not grown in the UK because the season is too short for it to mature in the field. Our UK farm starts the season early by protecting the tender shoots until the weather is warmer. Corn is naturally gluten free and the Grano 200, Country, and Vario mills we sell can mill them (many home mills cannot mill yellow maize). The store bought corn flour here in the UK does not make good corn bread. It is too dry and fine. Our yellow maize is cleaned to the highest standard you can find in the UK. We provide recipes for corn bread, muffins, and a wonderful corn porridge.

Naked Oats

Our supreme naked oats are completely raw and sproutable. Naked oats are a different variety with more natural oils and nutrients. They are grown in Essex on a farm that grows all of their grain in harmoney with nature and natural cycles. From seed to you, there is nothing man-made that goes into it. They are straight from the farm although they have been cleaned to the highest seed quality. They are great for raw diets. They make a very nutty porridge with a different texture and flavour than conventional porridge. Our Supreme Naked Oats are not only grown without chemicals, they are grown in harmony with nature and have not been heat treated like other oats. These oats are great sprouters and make a wonderful porridge or muesli.

Rye

Our rye is a very versatile grain. Add a bit to your bread recipes for a wonderful flavour and texture. Rye grain is very nutritious and is one of the few grains that naturally helps to control blood sugar levels. Rye is great for diabetics. Another way to enjoy rye is sprouting. Rye produces a very sweet sprout in only 2-3 days. Also great to add to raw diets.

Wheat

Our standard Sussex Solstice wheat is a great all around wheat for your baking needs. We also have a wheat variety called Magister that is a special strong bread wheat. It has great flavour and because of the high protein content, it produces a light loaf with outstanding flavour. It is an older variety of wheat that produces a lower yield, but superior grain and superior flavour. It is cleaned to the highest standard you can find in the UK. We also provide a premium wheat from Hertfordshire of a different variety that has been grown with an increased sensitivity to the environment. Our premium wheat produces a great loaf of bread.

Naked Barley

We have just received our naked barley from the fields. We were sent some samples to test and we are thrilled with the results. Barley is an extremely nutritious grain that should be somewhere in your diet. Barley is high in selenium in which most UK diets have a difficiency. The soluble fiber is similar to oats which make them great for reducing cholesterol. The main difference is that barley has over 3 times as much fibre as oats. This barley is an ancient naked variety which means that the bran does not have to be mechanically removed as with modren pearled barleys. They make great sprouts, muesli, porridge and are great with soups and salads.
