'Reclaim The Grain' is about the decommodification and relocalisation of basic food ingredients; such as flour, oats, and other grains. Small-scale farmers are growing resilient varieties using methods that are low in carbon and support biodiversity. Reclaim The Grain will help make their businesses sustainable offering a price that reflects the costs of production.
Reclaim The Grain is a Trademark (application pending) of Dartington Mill CIC - two farms (The Apricot Centre CIC, Old Parsonage Farm) and an artisan baker (The Almond Thief), working together in a unique collaboration to produce high-quality products.
