Mike는 Kialla에게 쌀수수, 해바라기, 경질소맥(빵을 만드는데 최고)과 연질소맥(케익을 만드는데 적합) 등 각종 농작물을 제공하고 있습니다.

그는 퀸즐랜드 중부에 2400헥타르의 유기농장이 있습니다. 이 농장은 그의 가족이 1963년부터 소유한 재산입니다. Mike는 부인, 두 딸과 함께 스프링수얼성 밖의 한 농장에서 생활하고 있습니다.

옥수수, 수수와 해바라기는 모두 1월달에 재배하고 여름에 수확하는 일년생 농작물입니다. Mike는 지난 여름의 강우 여부에 따라 재배할 것인지, 무엇을 재배할 것인지를 결정합니다.

호주의 밀은 겨울에 자라고 약 5개월의 성장기를 거친 후 10월 혹은 11월에 수확합니다.

유기농민들은 주요 농작물의 주기 사이에 두류 농작물을 재배하여 질소가 토양으로 돌아오도록 합니다. 퇴비는 질소와 칼륨의 증가를 통해 토양의 생산력을 제고시켜 줍니다. 전통 재배 방식 하에서 토양 생산력의 제고는 오직 화학 비료로만 실현할 수 있습니다.

유기농작물의 질은 농민들이 가진 토양영업지식의 영향을 받습니다. 하지만 농작물의 성공은 주로 날씨에 의해 결정됩니다. 농민들은 이 점을 변경할 수 없습니다.

농장을 떠나 공장으로 운송된 곡물에 어떤 일이 일어나는지 알고 싶으십니까?

    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.

    We’ve tried several other pancake mixes but nothing comes close to yours!

    Of all the brands of flour I have used Kialla is by far the BEST!

  • 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.
