YQ Population Wheat, Wholegrain, Organic, 500g

YQ Population Wheat, Wholegrain, Organic, 500g

Regular price £1.80

Whole organic wheat grain from the revolutionary YQ population, grown at Home Farm, Nacton, Suffolk.

YQ wheat grains can be cooked and eaten whole, or milled at home for flavoursome and nutritious flour.

The YQ (Yield and Quality) wheat population was bred at Wakelyns Agroforestry by Professor Martin Wolfe and the Organic Research Centre. The population is a crop of extraordinary diversity that's emerged over time from a wide range of carefully chosen parent varieties, leading to fields of millions of genetically distinct individual wheat plants rather than the usual genetically uniform monocultures.
