This harvest was grown by Andrew Gilhespy, and Lyn and Jon Perkins on the Dartington Estate using organic methods.

It's a population grain developed by the late Martin Wolf at the Organic research centre. This population is part of a reaction to the way our wheat seed and farming have developed over the last 70 years.  “In 2000, Wolfe created a very special crop. With the help of plant breeders and the scientists from the Organic Research Centre, Wolfe took 20 varieties of wheat that had been doing well under low-input conditions in the UK, half chosen for their quality – their high protein and gluten contents – half for their high yield, and cross-bred them every which way, resulting in 190 new crosses.

Normally, a breeder would look at these plants and select for the traits they want. But this time seeds from all 190 were thrown together in a field, grown, harvested and reseeded together for several years. Wolfe called it YQ, for “yield” and “quality”.”
