The Harvest, BBC Countryfile & Heritage Pasta

As we have been working on our new range of Heritage Pasta, the grains in the Prestwood farm fields where we have been experimenting with pasta have been ripening and the harvest has started! We have been lucky enough to witness the extra-ordinary ripper-binder, an incredible 1930’s machine that still at work on the farm.

It seems it was not only us that was interested and a crew from the BBC program CountryFile visited to film our friend John Letts autumn Harvest of the heritage grains. We have been using John’s flour in our cookery classes and to make our fresh pasta for some time and have recently been developing some dried pasta with it.

Country File aired on the 30th August and featured not only John but us making pasta and creating a amazing dish of food for everyone on the team. We will be selling some of the pasta along with some pesto at the Thame Food Festival on the 26th September… hope to see you there.
