Adopt a wheat field from the orchard "BioVállega" in Illana (Spain) and receive your harvest in the form of organic flour at home. The Farmer Luis will take care of your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: once you receive your harvest and you enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.
Adopt a wheat field (75m2) that we cultivate under the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union since 2008. Khorasan wheat, popularly known as kamut wheat, is one of the oldest varieties of wheat we know, along with spelt. Originating from the region between Egypt and the Tigris and Euphrates River Valleys, this wheat is high in protein and minerals, especially selenium, zinc and magnesium. During the development of the crop we will manually remove the ears that do not correspond to the variety of Khorasan wheat that we want to offer you. Through this work we have achieved that the purity of our crop is 97.6% (certified). We produce an average of 1500 kg per hectare. Once harvested and threshed, we take the grain to our stone mill and pack the flour in paper bags.
Each season we will send you a box with: 5 x __wholemeal flour __(1kg paper bags) Variedad: Khorasan wheat (Triticum turgidum var. turanicum). The grain of Khorasan wheat is very hard and is larger than that of common wheat. It has a sweet and pleasant taste reminiscent of butter. It has a higher concentration of protein and lipids than common wheat. Khorasan wheat flour is suitable for various recipes, especially for pastries. You can make cookies, pancakes, cakes, etc. It is also suitable for making bread, although it is advisable to mix it with conventional or strong wheat flour in order to obtain a fluffier bread. On the other hand, the conservation of this flour is simple, it is enough to keep it in a fresh and dry place. Once opened, it can be stored in a jar in the pantry, which is the ideal place to keep it for approximately 90 days.
