Phil在圣乔治东部一个200公顷的农场里为Kialla种植小麦、亚麻籽和绿豆。

Phil在他岳父经过有机认证的农场上合作耕种。合作种植指的是农夫将其收入的一部分交给业主作为“租金”。这使那些未能拥有足够土地的人也能进行耕种。

Phil和他妻子居住在新南威尔士州莫里镇南300公里外他自己的农场里。他在两个农场间穿梭,管理他种植的作物。两个农场之间的车程约3个小时。但是,如果他需要开拖拉机北上进行栽种或收割,那就远不止3个小时了。

由于种植了越来越多的作物,多年以来土壤越来越贫瘠。传统作物上使用的杀虫剂也影响了土壤中的微生物含量。

为了提高产量,Phil尝试了不同的方法来提高土壤生产力和微生物含量。

他使用堆肥和一种农夫们称之为“魔术糊糊“的东西——一种维生素、矿物质、氨基酸、蛋白质、酵素、碳水化合物和有益生物的子实体混合物。

这些方法的使用最终会增强土壤的微生物活性。

这确保了植物获得更多养分,帮助它们更好地抵抗艰苦的气候条件并且生产出更多营养丰富的谷物。

想知道谷物离开农场到达工厂后会发生什么?

    I never make a bad loaf of bread now, since changing over to Kialla flour… I can’t get over the superior quality of your product. I have bought some for everyone in my family.

    We’ve found that Kialla popcorn is the best – it pops so much better than other popcorns, and it tastes great. Our kids love it.

    I truly like the transparency and traceability that Kialla Pure Foods offers. I’m actually able to see which farm grew the wheat milled into my 10kg bag of flour. This really sealed the deal for me. And I feel that Kialla sets themselves apart in this sense.

  • Meredith J. Home Baker

    Kialla is the best flour I’ve ever used – and that includes some great US flours. Please keep milling forever!!

  • Jacqui Mead, Consumer

    We’ve been using Kialla’s products for approximately seven years now, making the change to Organic Spelt Flour following the discovery that my son had a wheat and dairy intolerance. I have found that our whole family’s health has improved.
