Initially, we planted a small trial on our farm to test the differences between several types of quinoa that could easily be purchased from off the local supermarket shelf. Luck however was not on our side as the seeds would either fail to germinate or the plants wouldn’t reach maturity within the cool UK climate. We moved on to testing a vast array of other quinoa varieties, from bird seed to small packets from garden centres, again without success as the quality of the harvested seed was poor and not suitable for consumption.
Our breakthrough came when we were fortunate enough to trial some new quinoa varieties that had been bred for our European climate... and they were fantastic! The new varieties produced a high quality quinoa sample with nice big white grains, and they successfully matured come the Autumn allowing us to mechanically harvest the crop with our combine. We now have the exclusive UK licence to these new quinoa varieties and have built our business up around them.
