Our Lancashire Milling Wheat for bread making is a spring wheat it is usually sown in March and harvested in September. It’s shorter growing season gives lower yields per hectare and consequently a higher protein (gluten) content. This makes the Spring wheat varieties we grow at BROW FARM more suitable for bread flours, and with us not using any chemicals on the crop the shorter growing time makes for earlier weed control, less pest damage to the growing crop and so making it earlier for the crop to withstand disease.
Lancashire grown Milling Wheat for bread baking. Our Milling Wheat’s were grown last year on the fertile farm land of West Lancashire. It is then pre-cleaned and if needed dried to a moisture content of 14%. Then it is stored in large bins. When the wheat is wanted it is put though a cleaner were the dust is removed and the wheat is sifted. The whole wheat grains are then packed in bags ready to be shipped.
