Over the past couple of years, we've been working together with Reclaim the Grain in Dartington to produce our own, Tamar Valley flour!
We received a delivery from Reclaim the Grain of a wheat seed variety called 'Cornovii', named after a Celtic tribe and a blend of seven heritage wheat seeds developed by Fred Price.
Our friend James Tancock sowed an acre of wheat for us on his farm in Metherell, here in the Tamar Valley.
Dartington Mill CIC began milling our wheat in small batches, and we received our first delivery of Tamar Valley bread flour!
This year we've doubled the area in which we're growing wheat, and have planted seed that we harvested last year. Wheat adapts very quickly to its environment, so we hope by continuing to resow the wheat we harvest, we'll develop a type perfectly suited to the Tamar Valley climate!
We now have white and wholemeal flours available to buy on the Food Hubs, perfect for breads as well as cakes and pastries.
