The Heartland Association’s mission, in regards to heritage wheats in the UK, is to make them available for everyone. We aim to work with more and more growers, mills and private people, our programme being geared towards helping people grow heritage varieties of wheat directly, as part of an integrated programme for rural development that works across farming, tourism and forestry.

                We welcome you to this sustainable revolution.

             Look through the website, and contact us for more info.


 We grew our first heritage wheats from small amounts with volunteers out in an abandoned farm in the middle of the forest in Italy.Bit by bit we developed a programme with small farmers and projects in which they too now grow some of the oldest wheat varieties in the world: Durum from Sicily, and Bread Wheat from the mountains of Abruzzo.
