Grain Family – Introduction
The Grain Family represents some of the next generation of the Gretschmann family who migrated to Tasmania many years ago to raise their family and undertake organic agriculture, making an important contribution to the entire Tasmanian farming sector by showing that small-scale organic agriculture can be an important contributor to the local economy.
The Grain Family has carved out a clever niche market growing interesting grains such as spelt and selling grain products and flours made from those grains.
Their products include spelt, blue barley, oats, wheat, green lentils and khorosan (also known by the trademarked name kamut).
Their products are available on Saturdays at the Harvest Launceston market through the Elgaar stand and at the Sunday Harvest Feast Market in Hobart.
We really enjoy their products, especially the flours because they are milled every week to ensure absolute freshness.
It is also enjoyable to play around with different combinations of these flours. We like to add a small amount of khorosan to our gougeres recipe, for example. Even 10% or 15% of this ancient flour gives it an almost crunchy texture and a slightly nutty flavour!
You can also order their products online at the following link:
They also use the flours to make some excellent pasta products which you can also order online.
