I’ve spoken to dozens of people over the last year who’ve shaken their heads and announced firmly that: “You just can’t grow wheat in Fife for bread.”
“You can grow soft wheat, suitable only for soda bread or cakes”.
“The climates all wrong. We have to import our wheat from Canada.”
I’ve tried to argue the case and been faced with world weary chuckles and sympathetic shakes of the head.
Yesterday we tasted the first loaf baked from this years Falkland’s wheat crop. Thanks to Amelia for growing it and David for baking it. It was delicious.
