HOW EASY IS IT TO GROW?With a small initial capital outlay, and a little on-going effort in tending your crop, you can grow trays of wheatgrass very easily. It is one of those habits that's easy, once you know how, and you've experimented a few times! There are 2 mediums in which to grow wheatgrass - using soil or hydroponically (using water). Traditionally, wheatgrass, like any plant, is best grown in soil. The nutrient levels are slightly reduced by growing in water, but this method is convenient for those people who cannot make compost, etc. in a garden, and those who just want to keep the growing really simple. You can try both methods, and choose which suits your own circumstances best. Growing instructions are included with the kits, which provide the ingredients for a minimum of 4 trays. ARE WE REALLY SO UNHEALTHY?Two of the most salutary trends in modern nutrition are the malnutrition of affluent society and mass dehydration - both lead to poor health. We are increasingly dependent on refined foods, low quality, mass produced meat, fruit and vegetables. We are subject to massive media exposure of the high sugar drinks and fast food outlets. There is an increasing need to add fertilisers to improve yields from impoverished soil, and to use of growth hormones and antibiotics in the production of meat. Other factors - such as the tight margins demanded by supermarket giants - all conspire to reduce the nutritional value of our foods. The poor quality of our tap water does little to encourage us to drink the recommended daily quota. Our reliance on high energy sugar drinks and stimulants, such as tea and coffee, combine to dehydrate our systems still further. The results can include a reduction in the efficiency of our immune systems, a lowering of reserves through the poor nutrient content of our diet and a propensity to infections . . .IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM, HOWEVER . . .An increase in the public's awareness of these issues has led to an enormous increase in the consumption of organic foods, a suspicion of GMO foods, the on-going call for adequate food labelling and increased use of water purification. Alongside the quantum leaps in our understanding of the importance of living foods and the factors that have led to the deterioration in the quality of our food, come the welcome proliferation of the juice bar, the complementary health clinic, and the local wholefood shop. An organic, freshly prepared juice in a gym or juice bar may cost 3 or more, but an increasing number of people are looking for ways to boost their intake of fresh organic nutrients and of pure water AT HOME. What is it about wheatgrass, that leads it to feature on the menus of fashionable juice bars, to help increasing numbers of people in their fight against cancer, to boost the immune system, and to be an important element in most detox programmes?
  • Steve Meyerowitz, known as Sproutman in the US, describes wheatgrass as "a sunshine transfusion"
  • Dr Ann Wigmore healed her gangrenous legs with it in the 1970's and later ran the Boston marathon; and
  • our own Living Foods expert, Elaine Bruce, who was a student of the late Ann Wigmore, describes it as an essential ingredient of the Living Foods Programme. Click Here for a Printer Friendly Fact Sheet on Wheatgrass & The Wheatgrass Starter Kit SO . . . WHY DRINK WHEATGRASS JUICE?Wheatgrass earned its reputation from people with terminal illnesses, who took it at the eleventh hour after conventional medicine left them with no hope. In the 1970s, Dr Ann Wigmore opened the Hippocrates Health Institute, in Boston, nourishing terminally ill patients back to health with fresh squeezed wheatgrass. Dr Charles F Schnabel (1895 - 1974) chemist and agriculturalist, knew from his work with his farm animals and his research in the laboratory, that wheatgrass boosts nutrition, builds good blood and strengthens immunity. More recently, there are many studies demonstrating the efficacy and nutrition of grass foods, using both clinical evidence and testimonials. In the US there are numerous healing centres, where wheatgrass plays a key role in the diet. There are courses run in the UK by proponents of wheatgrass and raw, living foods. Wheatgrass has long been used like a herbal medicine - for its therapeutic and nutritional properties. Although wheat is the most popular, barley, oats and rye are equally potent.So what's it good for?Blood purification, Liver detoxification, Colon cleansing. As a food Wheatgrass is very nourishing and restorative with a complete range of nutrients. Therapeutically, the fresh juice can be drunk or applied rectally using a enema implant. For disease prevention, you can make powdered drinks, take it in tablet or capsule form, or drink the fresh juice as part of a long term health maintenance programme. For those with an intolerance to gluten, do not be put off . . . The grain metamorphoses completely into a vegetable, with none of the allergic proteins common to the glutenous grains.". . . our food is our medicine and our medicine is our food" - Hippocrates, the father of medicine.It has long been established that the best medicine is a whole, natural food. All known nutrients were found in concentrated form in wheatgrass, including what are now known as phytochemicals. Also anti-oxidants, enzymes, 20 amino acids, vitamins including: folic acid, calcium, zinc, selenium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, potassium, and cellular RNA and DNA. Similar natural superfoods containing a broad spectrum of concentrated nutrients are bee pollen, spirulina, chlorella and blue green algae. They all provide the raw materials from which the body manufactures what it needs and balances its own chemistry. Grasses, along with alfalfa and these algae, are the richest sources of chlorophyll on the planet. Green plant cells are the only cells capable of absorbing the energy of the sun. The famous research scientist E. Bircher called chlorophyll "concentrated sunpower - it increases the functions of the heart, improves the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus and the lungs. It raises the basic nitrogen exchange and is therefore a tonic which, considering its stimulating properties cannot be compared with any other". The amount of juice you drink is totally up to you.Steve Meyerowitz says "Grass is non-toxic in any dose, but you may react to the results of its detoxifying power. All grass is a powerful purgative for the liver, and too much can release too many poisons too quickly". EXPERIMENT! Start with small quantities. It can be mixed with other juices or taken neat. Notice the effects of a daily 1oz shot! Remember - it's concentrated sunpower! Rocket fuel! Greenpower! Living food! Whatever it becomes for you . . . have fun! If you have time let us know how you get on.

    Price: 1.50 each
    code: MST

    These are the best trays on the market we use them on the farm. Alright you will find cheaper trays on other sites, but other trays are made to use once and then through away. BUT our trays are made to use again and again we have have been using some of these trays on the farm for years. They're a nice colour too so if your going to put your Wheatgrass in the kitchen window they look better than them black trays. I've even washed them in the dishwasher and they seem to stand up to it all right. (We can get you the black trays for half the price, but they won't last half as long.)

    ARE WE REALLY SO UNHEALTHY?

    In real terms we are living longer than any other time in human history. We eat when ever we like and as much as we want. This is a great achievement for our society. But in order to do this we have over looked the main reasons we eat food. It is for it's nutrisnal values. If it tastes good then so much the better for it.

    Our ancestors lived off the land, if fruit was ripe then they picked and eat it. When it could be stored it was stored fresh and uncooked, so keeping a great many vitamins and minerals. When they got the chance of meat they were glad of it and often it was eaten uncooked. Or only cooked on the out side. When meat was stored it was dried or smoked, this all retained a greater number of vitamins. Our ancestors lived like this for thousands of years. From the day we walked upright and long before that time our bodies have been chancing to suit the environment around it. So over this time our bodies have adapted to digest the food we eat.

    Yet today two of the most salutary trends in modern nutrition are the malnutrition of affluent society and mass dehydration - both lead to poor health. We are increasingly dependent on refined foods, pre cooked and preperpered. We are subject to massive media exposure of the high sugar drinks and fast food outlets. Our reliance on high energy sugar drinks and stimulants, such as tea and coffee, combine to dehydrate our systems still further. The results can include a reduction in the efficiency of our immune systems, a lowering of reserves through the poor nutrient content of our diet and the way our food is now prepered by us and for us. . .
    IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM, HOWEVER . . .

    An increase in the public's awareness of these issues has led to an enormous increase in the consumption of organic foods and a suspicion of GMO foods, I'm sorry to say that having been growing fresh fruit and vegetables for a living all my life and my father and father before him. My veiws on organic food and GMO foods may fly in the face of what may peoples apinions are. I do how ever understand the ongoing call for adequate food labelling and increased use of water purification. Alongside the quantum leaps in our understanding of the importance of living foods and the factors that have led to the deterioration in the quality of our food. But I have to ask the questions of why we do many of thses things.

    A big problem with the so called healthy food groups is the reason they are going down these roots. As a farmer and grower I feel I'm as well qualifed as anyone to give my piont of veiw on the health and wealth of this country we live in. We dont have to go back far in the history of our country to see how much it as changed. Dispite all you may read and have been told we are far far better off than our granperrents. But this in its self as made new problems. Not just for us but for our country and in the end the world we live in. Has I said earlier our problems started thousands of years ago. From the first day a of our ansester picked up a rock and used it as a tool. You could say that was the day we changed the world for ever! Here's the reason why. Up to that time we had changed to suit the enviroment around us. Not by our own chusing but by the enviroment around us. Mr Chiales Dawin realised this with his thiray of evalostion. An easy way

    You can use this wheat for , too!
    Recipe Method
    Soak wheatgrass seeds in water for 8 to 12 hours. Get a jam jar or pickling jar, put drained and rinsed wheat in it, cover lid with nylon net or part of an old stocking, secure with a rubber band. Twice a day, rinse (cover with cool water, swirl around, dump out). In 2 to 3 days, a small sprout will appear. Refrigerate at this point. Can eat raw, in salads, on sandwiches, or alone, or cook about 5 minutes, use in bread, or cook and eat plain or with rice. Has a slightly sweet, nutty flavour
