We aim for a six year crop rotation of:

1 - Winter Wheat
2 - Winter Wheat / Barley
3 - Oilseed Rape
4 - Winter Wheat
5 - Winter Wheat / Barley
6 - Beans / Poppies

Sometimes circumstances such as markets, weed pressure, weather and field size mean that variations have to be made.

Much of the wheat we grow is sold for milling to produce flour for bread and biscuits, in particular to Wessex Mill at Wantage, although we also grow for animal feed.

Barley is grown for malting for the brewing industry, although if it doesn't meet requirements it goes as animal feed.

Oilseed rape is produced for crushers to make margarine and cooking oil.

Beans, if the quality is good enough, may go for human consumption otherwise as a high protein animal feed.
