The Quinoa Farming Calendar
With it's high nutritive value, Quinoa is becoming increasingly recognised as an important food source and significant benefits in food security for present and future generations.
We have been growing a form of quinoa on our farm in Essex for Bird Food and conservation markets for over 25 years. Originally brought over from South America by Francis Nicholls, part of J.K King & son to investigate the suitability of the British Climate for growing Quinoa. After successful trials, we have now produced a commercial product for UK consumption
