Farming

“They are our neighbours. They work relentlessly from dawn ‘til dusk. They are organic BC Grain Farmers and they are the inspiration for everything we do.”

BC Grown Marquis

 

  • In 1892, driven by a desire to grow a high-yield Canadian wheat that would ripen before early fall frosts, Dr. William Saunders decided to cross Hard Red Calcutta wheat with Red Fife to create Marquis
  • Agriculture Canada first distributed Marquis in 1909 & it quickly rose in popularity. In 1911, Marquis took the honours when Canadian Pacific Railway offered $1,000 in gold for the best wheat variety.
  • By 1918, Marquis occupied more than 80% of Canada’s total wheat acreage.
  • Renowned for its milling and baking qualities, we slowly stone mill whole Marquis flour at low temperatures to preserve its subtle yet rich flavour.

BC Grown Bishop

 

  • Bishop is Canada’s first hard white wheat. It’s a cross between Ladoga and Gehn developed by Agriculture Canada in 1892.
  • Bishop kernels can be strikingly white in appearance, much different from hard red wheat kernels which typically are amber.
  • Because of the overwhelming popularity of hard red wheat in the 1890’s, Bishop wasn’t registered by Agriculture Canada, and was never grown commercially.
  • Bishop has slightly less protein than a typical hard red wheat, and delivers its own unique, slightly sweeter flavour.
  • We slowly stone mill whole Bishop flour at low temperatures to preserve its flavour. Whole Bishop flour can be substituted for whole wheat flour in your recipes. “Whole” simply means we grind the entire kernel and nothing is added or removed.
