Thatching wheat

Every year we grow special varieties of wheat to produce the long straw that is traditional for Thatching roofs in Essex

We harvest the crop in the traditional fashion with a binder before stooking it up to let it ripen. After a week or more the stack is made and then thrashed out in the autumn.
