Our organic farm and mill

Sharpham Park is a 300 acre estate in the heart of the Somerset Levels near Glastonbury. It’s the home of Roger Saul who founded the luxury leather brand, Mulberry. We grow organic spelt and stone grind it in the traditional way to preserve the delicious, nutty taste of the ancient, wonder grain. We turn the milled grain into flour, cereal, muesli, pearled spelt and grain. Spelt flour can be substituted for conventional wheat in most recipes to make cakes, pastry, bread or pizza dough. 

The estate has a fascinating history. Records show that spelt has been grown for approximately 4,000 years in the area since the Bronze and Iron ages.

 Sharpham Park is a modern interpretation of a traditional deer park. While the main produce from the farm is spelt, we also employ a system of organic crop rotation to replenish the soil without the need for pesticides and fertilisers.  The farm is accredited by Organic Farmers and Growers. The spelt fields have 4 metre margins and the hedgerows are cut every other year to allow wildlife to flourish, and forage for food all year round.  

Why spelt?

Spelt is a hybrid of emmer wheat and goat grass. It's a grain that many people who suffer wheat intolerance or sensitivity may be able to enjoy. The molecular structure of the protein in spelt is both brittle and soluble, allowing it to be digested more easily. It’s also high in fibre, vitamins and minerals and an excellent source of slow release energy. Legend has it that the Roman army called it their `marching grain’.

Working with the charity, Bowel Cancer UK

We are working in partnership with the charity, Bowel Cancer UK, to spread the message that it's important to eat a high fibre diet to help prevent bowel cancer. The Great British Spelt Recipes campaign has received support from more than 40 celebrity chefs and food writers who have donated delicious and innovative spelt recipes to encourage us all to enjoy delicious, fibre rich spelt dishes. They include the Fabulous Baker Brothers, Tom Aikens, Hugh Fernley Whittingstall, Heston Blumenthal, Mark Hix, Yotam Ottolenghi and Rachel Green.

Research by Bowel Cancer UK has found that including three servings (90g) per day of whole grains in the diet is associated with a 20% reduction in the risk of developing bowel cancer.
