 Welcome to Sharpham Park 

 

Worldwide shortage of spelt


You've probably read about the global scarcity of spelt; at Sharpham Park we've had calls from as far away as Australia and Canada from customers who would like to buy our organic grain.  A poor harvest and a global increase in demand has led to the price of spelt doubling on the international market in the past year. A tonne of organic grain has increased from £800 to £2000 in the past twelve months. White spelt flour is particularly scarce, as it requires 40% more grain to produce than wholegrain flour. The good news is that we are able to supply our existing customers and the next harvest looks like it's going to be a good one.

If you missed BBC Radio 4's `The Kitchen Cabinet' when the panel discussed all things spelt, listen again here.

SHARPHAM PARK   Sharpham Park is a 300 acre organic estate set deep in the Somerset countryside. The Estate is owned by Roger Saul, the founder of British designer label Mulberry, where we take pride in our sustainable and organic farming techniques. It is here that we grow and mill spelt, an ancient cousin of wheat with many health, taste and nutritional benefits, and with a delicious nutty taste. From this West Country spelt we have created a selection of spelt products: the best organic breakfast cereals, spelt flour, and pearled spelt - which is a fantastic alternative and makes a great `speltotto.'   Feel free to browse the website and discover the wonderful properties of spelt, which is as flexible to use as wheat with greater health benefits and is a viable crop for the future.   You can find and taste all our delicious spelt products under one roof by visiting our shop and café at Kilver Court, just up the road from the farm, in Shepton Mallet in Somerset, or by ordering online.
