Hey folks,

Does anyone know where to buy or otherwise obtain heritage grain in the UK or Europe? We're planning to experiment with growing grains on our smallholding.

Cheers!

Hi Henry,

I'd be very interested in trialling Maris Wigeon here in Wales. I'll send you a PM so we can discuss further.

Cheers,

Sam

Mine is growing ok, I planted it a bit late and this is the first time I have grown it so I will have to see how it turns out. However if I let my local organic farm know I am sure I can get some more.

So if anyone reading this wants some let us know.
