of wheat we grow on the farm depends on the what it is to
be used for. Spring Wheat is usually sown in March and harvested
in September. Its shorter growing season than winter wheat
so gives lower yields per hectare and consequently a higher
protein content. This makes the Spring wheat varieties we
grow at BROW FARM
more suitable for bread flours.

In A wheat Grain?
To understand the benefits associated with milling grain,
you need to understand what comprises a whole grain. There
are three main layers: the bran, the germ, and the endosperm.
• The bran is the outer layer where all the roughage that
helps move unwanted poisons and toxins through your system
is found. The bran also contains numerous vitamins, minerals,
• The germ is the health center of the grain, overflowing
with vitamins B and E, as well as unsaturated fat and protein.
• The endosperm is the starchy white center. Whole grains
contain almost 90% of all the vitamins, minerals, and protein
you’ll ever need. However, commercially milled products
don’t offer you those nutrients. Why? Once milled, the oils
found in the bran and germ oxidize and turn rancid within
72 hours. So for commercial purposes, both the bran and
germ—and all the nutrients contained within them—must be
removed in order to give products a shelf life.
Is Made of What?
The endosperm is all that’s left of the original grain.
So you’re basically eating gluten and starch when you eat
products off the shelf. For PR purposes, you’ll see breads
and cereals claiming to be “enriched with vitamins and minerals!”
Don’t be fooled. The fact that a product needs enriching
is a sign of how much of its health value has been diminished.
Usually only 2-4 of the missing vitamins and minerals can
be replaced anyway, and nothing can be done to replace the
fiber and protein.
Although the nation is currently experiencing low-carb mania,
fresh whole grain products are in fact good for you. They
are low in fat, high in protein, and provide energy for
your muscles and body. High fiber found in whole grains
helps in the management of obesity, diabetes, hemorrhoids,
stroke, and heart attacks. Eating whole-grain foods on a
regular basis has been shown to decrease risk for heart
disease and high cholesterol levels, and is also thought
to lower the risk of breast and colon cancer. Most commercial
products reek with preservatives, and bleaching agents.
When milling your own flour, you’re able to mill only the
amount you need, so nothing goes to waste and you are left
with fresh-tasting, chemically unaltered flour.
After eating bread prepared from grain you mill yourself,
there is no going back. Commercial products will taste stale,
even if they’re “fresh” off the shelf. Freshly milled breads
can have a variety of taste depending on which grains you
chose to mill. There’s fun in experimenting with different
grains in your recipes. Try adding or combining buckwheat,
spelt (good for people with wheat allergies), oats, rye,
wheat, quinoa, millet and many other grains for a never-ending
variety of taste.
Question: Does milling and baking your own grains take a
little longer than grabbing a loaf off the shelf? Answer:
Yes. But not that much longer, and the payoff in taste and
health benefits more than makes up for it. Don’t let yourself
be intimidated by the thought of milling your own grain.
These days, grain mills come in a variety of sizes, are
simple to use, and are adaptable to the average household,
meaning you can buy big or small units depending on your
needs. Plus, they eventually pay for themselves in money
saved on buying commercial products.
Today when we struggle to find time to fit in the washing,
walking the dog, get the kids to rugby and football practice,
the suggestion we mill our own grain may sound far-fetched.
But today’s grain mills make the process easy, and the benefits
associated with milling your own grain are tangible and
ongoing. Investigate different types of grain mills, or
find a friend or co-worker who owns one and ask to give
it a whirl. Experiment with a recipe or two, and you’ll
quickly understand why so many people are choosing to take
the time to pamper themselves with freshly milled, homebaked

Buckwheat Grains For Milling
is native to Russia. It is not an actual
grain but an herb belonging to the same
family as sorrel and rhubarb. Flour made
from buckwheat seed is used to make pancakes
in the United States, pasta in Italy,
soba in Japan and kasha in Russia. Use
buckwheat in breads, cereals, side dishes,
pancakes and salads. Because it contains
very little gluten it is a good alternative
for individuals allergic to that protein
substance. Buckwheat is high in all eight
essential amino acids as well as calcium
and vitamins E and B.
