Crop Research

At Gilchesters Organics, we never stop learning how to do our job better.

Our research projects respond to consumers' increasing demands for healthy and nutritious food produced sustainably

constantly striving to improve

We have been at the forefront of organic crop research for over 14 years constantly striving to improve our understanding in organic crop husbandry and cereal nutrition

We have many partners in our research projects including Newcastle University here in Northumberland as well as many Organic Institutes and agricultural faculties from Universities and institutes across Europe.

Our current involvement is in the international research project for Healthy Minor Cereals; a consortium of farmers, millers, bakers, universities and research institutes aiming to boost cultivation and consumption of five minor cereals (rye, oat, spelt , emmer and einkorn) from 800+ species within European gene banks.

We are also a big supporter of the Real Bread Campaign and will use this page to inform readers on a range of current scientific findings relating to issues in bread, digestibility and health issues.
