From seed to loaf (part 1 of 2) allotment scale production of bread making wheat

This video is about small-scale wheat production using modified garden machinery and a home-built threshing machine. I grow my own wheat and make bread not because its 10% cheaper but because I think its 100% better – and it gives me great satisfaction. Growing wheat this way is an indulgence as it requires a certain amount of land, if space is tight growing vegetables and salad crops makes more sense. If you want to try yourself, please check first to see if wheat will grow in your area. Enjoy whatever you grow and remember -look after the land and the land will look after you.
