Organic Stoneground 100% Wholewheat Flour (703)
To produce this flour, our miller selects a rare single variety of English wheat called Maris Widgeon, justifiably renowned for its excellent baking quality, its...
pleasing nutty flavour and cheerful name. He carefully blends this with top quality organic wheat from the continent to give the strength and robustness for outstanding baking results every time.
Maris Widgeon was traditionally grown because of the quality of its straw which is much prized by thatchers. However, being a traditional variety it is well suited to the organic system of sustainable farming. For every acre, Maris Widgeon yields almost half the amount of wheat of the new modern varieties, but its quality and flavour are so excellent we believe it is worth paying a premium to farmers to encourage them to continue to grow this ancient variety.
Please note: This is the same flour as our 1kg Stoneground Organic Wholemeal Flour (706), just a different bag size. For historical reasons they have been simply been branded and marketed in slightly different ways.
