20/10/15 Processing the Grain

A quick update from the Grown in Totnes team.

The great news is that the harvest is IN and we hope to have three Grown in Totnes grains in Totnes shops this winter: oats, Maris Widgeon wheat, and barley, from two farms we are working with in Churchstow and Beeson.

After the harvest, the grain is cleaned (see the video below), bagged (this week), and milled (next week!). A team of us are going to take the grain up to a small scale grain producer near High Wycombe, where we will be able to trial the processing equipment to see if it is suitable for our needs before we go ahead and purchase our own with the funds raised from our crowdfunding campaign.
