The type of wheat
we grow on the farm depends on the what it is to be used for.
Spring Wheat is usually sown in March and harvested in September.
Its shorter growing season than winter wheat so gives lower
yields per hectare and consequently a higher protein content.
This makes the Spring wheat varieties we grow at BROW
FARM more suitable with it's fast growth so helping drown
out weeds that grow in the fields due to us not using any herbicides
when growing our wheat.for bread flours.

A wheat Grain?
To understand the benefits associated with milling grain, you
need to understand what comprises a whole grain. There are three
main layers: the bran, the germ, and the endosperm.
• The bran is the outer layer where all the roughage that helps
move unwanted poisons and toxins through your system is found.
The bran also contains numerous vitamins, minerals, and proteins.
• The germ is the health centre of the grain, overflowing with
vitamins B and E, as well as unsaturated fat and protein.
• The endosperm is the starchy white centre. Whole grains contain
almost 90% of all the vitamins, minerals, and protein you’ll
ever need. However, commercially milled products don’t offer
you those nutrients. Why? Once milled, the oils found in the
bran and germ oxidize and turn rancid within 72 hours. So for
commercial purposes, both the bran and germ—and all the nutrients
contained within them—must be removed in order to give products
a shelf life.
Bread Is Made
The endosperm is all that’s left of the original grain. So you’re
basically eating gluten and starch when you eat products off
the shelf. For PR purposes, you’ll see breads and cereals claiming
to be “enriched with vitamins and minerals!” Don’t be fooled.
The fact that a product needs enriching is a sign of how much
of its health value has been diminished. Usually only 2-4 of
the missing vitamins and minerals can be replaced anyway, and
nothing can be done to replace the fiber and protein.
Although the nation is currently experiencing low-cab mania,
fresh whole grain products are in fact good for you. They are
low in fat, high in protein, and provide energy for your muscles
and body. High fiber found in whole grains helps in the management
of obesity, diabetes, haemorrhoids, stroke, and heart attacks.
Eating whole-grain foods on a regular basis has been shown to
decrease risk for heart disease and high cholesterol levels,
and is also thought to lower the risk of breast and colon cancer.
Most commercial products reek with preservatives, and bleaching
agents. When milling your own flour, you’re able to mill only
the amount you need, so nothing goes to waste and you are left
with fresh-tasting, chemically unaltered flour.
After eating bread prepared from grain you mill yourself, there
is no going back. Commercial products will taste stale, even
if they’re “fresh” off the shelf. Freshly milled breads can
have a variety of taste depending on which grains you chose
to mill. There’s fun in experimenting with different grains
in your recipes. Try adding or combining buckwheat, spelt (good
for people with wheat allergies), oats, rye, wheat, quinoa,
millet and many other grains for a never-ending variety of taste.
Question: Does milling and baking your own grains take a little
longer than grabbing a loaf off the shelf? Answer: Yes. But
not that much longer, and the payoff in taste and health benefits
more than makes up for it. Don’t let yourself be intimidated
by the thought of milling your own grain. These days, grain
mills come in a variety of sizes, are simple to use, and are
adaptable to the average household, meaning you can buy big
or small units depending on your needs. Plus, they eventually
pay for themselves in money saved on buying commercial products.
Today when we struggle to find time to fit in the washing, walking
the dog, get the kids to rugby and football practice, the suggestion
we mill our own grain may sound far-fetched. But today’s grain
mills make the process easy, and the benefits associated with
milling your own grain are tangible and ongoing. Investigate
different types of grain mills, or find a friend or co-worker
who owns one and ask to give it a whirl. Experiment with a recipe
or two, and you’ll quickly understand why so many people are
choosing to take the time to pamper themselves with freshly
milled, home baked goodness.

last year on the fertile farm land of West

is native to Russia. It is not an actual grain
but an herb belonging to the same family as
sorrel and rhubarb. Flour made from buckwheat
seed is used to make pancakes in the United
States, pasta in Italy, soba in Japan and
kasha in Russia. Use buckwheat in breads,
cereals, side dishes, pancakes and salads.
Because it contains very little gluten it
is a good alternative for individuals allergic
to that protein substance. Buckwheat is high
in all eight essential amino acids as well
as calcium and vitamins E and B.

Our Rye is grown without the
use of any chemicals on the soil or on the
crop before sowing when it is growing and
when it is stored. It is then pre-cleaned
