We love growing health giving crops...

Linseed or common flax with its pretty blue flowers and bell-like seed pods was one of the first domestically grown crops. Widely cultivated for tens of centuries in Ethiopia and in Egypt and even traces of dyed linen cloth dating back to 30,000 A.C. have been found in a cave in Georgia. The oil from linseed, pale yellowish in colour, is in demand as a nutritional supplement and is the highest source of omega-3 fatty acid in vegetable oils. Research is ongoing and seems to show that linseed or its derivatives may also reduce LDL-cholesterol in the blood. We have been growing linseed in some of our biodynamic fields for the past couple of years and this year will be cold pressing the seed to produce this beneficial oil.
