Product Description

  • Organic Wholemeal Spelt Flour
  • Spelt, triticum speltum, was widely grown in Roman times. It is an ancestor of modern wheat and its genetic heritage is a cross of wild grasses and early cultivated cereals.
  • Stoneground from an ancient relative of modern wheat, spelt will add delicious complex flavours to all your baking.
  • Baking with Spelt Flour
  • Wholegrain spelt flour will be delicious in your favourite wholemeal recipes. Spelt breads will naturally prove and rise more quickly than those made with conventional wheat flour, so reduce rising times and bake as soon as the dough has doubled in size rather than the timing given in standard bread recipes
  • At Doves Farm we make biscuits, cookies, snack bars and a large range of speciality flours.
  • Spelt, or triticum spelta, is an ancient relative of the modern wheat, which we have been growing on our farm since 1996. First cultivated over 9,000 years ago, it is a cousin of modern wheat. Spelt warrants a mention in the book of Ezekiel in the Bible, as well as being favoured by mystics and herbalists throughout history. Legend has it that the Roman army called spelt their 'marching grain'. To make wholegrain flour, the inedible outer husk is removed, leaving the inner bran and grain intact. Wholegrain Spelt flour has a deliciously complex flavour and is excellent in specialist breads or luxurious cookies.
  • Doves Farm Foods was established in 1978, when we wanted to make flour from the organic wheat we grew. We bought a millstone and set it up on the barn on our farm on the picturesque Wiltshire/Berkshire border. We now have a thriving business which mills many different and rare grains. At the hearts of our ethos, we are dedicated to ethical production methods, slow food and the organic movement. On our farm we rotate crops, livestock and grassland, as well as respecting the biodiversity of wildlife and the local environment. We have had Soil Association organic certification for over 30 years.
  • We are also passionate about home baking and believe that what we eat today will affect our health and well-being tomorrow. Baking bread, cookies and cakes at home is satisfying and rewarding activity. You can choose the best, local and seasonal ingredients, and know what goes into you family's food.

Organic and safer for health

5 stars

Organic is safer for our health. This is spelt like Romans used to eat. Free from all pesticides, herbicides, fungicides of non organic. Brown breads are denser I find it's better hand made than stuffed in bread machine. Eating processed white flours is bad for health. As is non organic. Ready made breads have ingredients that are full of bad for health and are not PURE flour either they bulk them with soya rice E numbers they aren't natural and pure etc Better for your kids homemade bread and rolls and ORGANIC for purity. We are what we eat and what we eat takes a toll on health eventually. Brown flours are an acquired taste but there's ways to make them taste better. I've tried this with chopped tomatoes and fresh basil very tasty. I've made one with bananas ground mixed spice, ginger and cinnamon and raisins also very tasty. use whole bunch bananas mash and add. I like it also with rosemary. It's tasty with chives and onions grilled. It's delicious with grilled onions. If you add WET stuff like tomatoes bananas you get moister bread too. I hand bake mine takes no time sieve from a height it's fluffier. Then add your yeast packet mix. I do fat free salt free for health but you can add those. Then add what you want to try with it. once you mix that in with knife add your warm water. Until it forms a dough then use your hands. Knead it really good, it puts air in, makes it fluffier. Knead on shelf or in bowl I use big bowl. Then wet a tea towel sit in warm room let rise. I do double rising so once risen again. knead it again then cover again makes it airier. For people with cancer this and rye are safe homemade options without oil and without salt and without sugar. I had end stage four I healed all naturally I used this bread whilst healing for safety as can't eat ready made loaves. Taste is fine if you spruce it up with different things. Tomatoes makes it delicious moist with basil or rosemary.

nice tasting 100% wholemeal bread

5 stars

Love it. Makes super bread in my bread machine. 100% Spelt bread, no additives or preservatives. Doesn't rise too high like white or mixed grain loafs, but makes a nice healthy tasting bread to go with vegan cheese or some sliced fruits.
