Our Story

We believe strongly in farming for the future by caring for the soil today. We understand that in the process of cultivating our crops we need to consider people first. Our 5th generation guarantee is backed by the traceability of our product; from field to fork. BIO-WHEAT™ … it’s about a way of life.

When visiting the Fourie farm, one is reminded of a bygone era where life seemed to pass by slower. This 5th generation family business has become our way of life. Leaving a legacy is what this product is all about. We pride ourselves on producing a single origin flour from the premium quality wheat the Rûens farming region in the Overberg has to offer. BIO-WHEAT™ flour is stoneground; a process in which the wheat is ground slowly between the stones without exposing it to excessive heat, thereby retaining the nutritional vitamins, wheatgerm and fibre. In essence, stoneground promises nothing added or removed. BIO-WHEAT™ flour is produced with wheat cultivated by means of biological farming methods. We apply crop rotation to replenish the soil by recycling our wheat crops with legume pastures. After harvesting, more organic matter is left in the soil to break down into natural humus. This reduces the need for chemical fertilizer, and in addition less pesticides are administered: pests do not like a healthy crop.
