DCF Single Origin Rolled Oats - 750g
These oats are grown by Rob and Caroline Rex, farmers who own and manage farmland in the Arthur River and Kojonup areas. They run merino sheep for wool and meat and grow a variety of crops including oats, barley, canola, wheat and lupins
The Rex’s believe that healthy soils are vital for long term profit and resilience in farming. To guide their decision making and keep the process as simple as possible, they consider: the water cycle (how rain can infiltrate into the soil and then be held there for later use by plants), the mineral cycle (how soils can recycle nutrients and break down old plant matter) and energy flow (how leaves can capture sunlight through photosynthesis) and the impact different decisions will have on each of these processes.
Originally the Rex’s used a conventional system of farming with high inputs of acid based fertiliser, fungicides and insecticides. Over time they began to question that system and the impact it was having on the land and long term profits. So began what has been and still is a long term education and research process looking for different tools to help in the quest to improve the water cycle, the mineral cycle and energy flow of plants and soils on their properties while also having a positive result for people, profit and the environment.
The Rex’s work towards building organic matter in their soils by trying to promote growth of plant roots, retaining crop residue and maintaining ground cover. This is done by using strategic grazing with sheep, perennial pastures in certain areas, cover crops when the seasons allow and trying to bring diversity into the system. They encourage natural predators in the insect world and only use pesticides when absolutely necessary. They are engaged in a constant process of experimentation and adaptive management following observations and trial results that aim to improve both production and soil, plant, animal and human health.
The oats are grown in a rotation which can include canola, barley, lupins, oats, wheat and pasture and the stubbles are grazed by their sheep. The aim is to have a rotation that is beneficial for weed control and soil health whilst producing a strong healthy crop.
Bannister is the variety of oats grown as it yields relatively well in their system and environment and is preferred by the millers, with the groats being quite large.
The oats are minimally processed and have been dehulled, streamed and rolled to denature the enzymes and stabilise them. They are a vegan super staple and incredibly nutritious and delicious. A great addition to baking, burgers, granola, smoothies etc.
