This is a really interesting video (in French) of Nicolas Supiot, a baker in Brittany who does Sourdough bread. He grows old varieties of wheat, grinds the flour and bake the bread in a traditional woodoven. Even if you don't understand French, the video can be interesting as you see him knead the dough, use the raising baskets and bake the bread.
I grew Red Fife (from here) last summer as an experiment, but I would not have enough to even bake one small loaf.
What varieties do you grow?

The largest cropped ones are Sonora wheat and a brewing barley. I'm building my seed crops with about 20 varieties from all over the world. Places like Egypt, Italy, north Africa, the himilayas, places near Russia, and a few more. Also working on more brewing barleys. The problem with them is when you get the seeds they only give you 30-50 seeds. So it takes some sacrifice and patience but I know it will be worth it.
