Trenchmore Heritage Wheat
In 2017 we harvested our first crop of Trenchmore Heritage Wheat, a landrace of mixed heirloom wheat varieties. Great genetic variety and higher in flavour than modern wheat varieties which have been bred for yield. Our small batch, stoneground, wholewheat flour is available locally and our wheat berries are proving popular with local chefs. More commonly used in France, wheat berries are packed full of nutrients and fibre and have a great nutty flavour - we are hoping they will catch on over here.
Our Sussex cows are crossed with our Red Wagyu bull and their calves are weaned at around 8 months and predominately grass-fed. The winter ration also includes by-products of human food production such as brewer's grains, apple pomace, local linseed meal from oil pressing and molasses. Using products that would otherwise go to waste helps us to produce consistently flavourful, tender and delicious beef.
