New Crop for 2016 - Hulless Oats


Hulless Oats

This year we have seeded a new crop for us. After many requests for a raw oat product, it was natural for us to grow and harvest a hulless variety. This eliminates the need for expensive dehulling, steaming and rolling equipment and allows us to be in control of this product from the time we seed in May until the day you grab it off a store shelf in September. These oats don't taste any different from our previous version of rolled oats, it's just that they are milled fresh, on-farm; or, you can simply purchase the whole oat groat for rolling or milling at your home. We are excited to see how they grow on our certified organic land near Morinville. It is a first for our farm. Follow along on twitter @GoldForestGrain for crop updates over the summer.
