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 product from the premium quality wheat 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.
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. Their health and well-being is our focus. BIO-WHEAT™ … it’s about a way of life.
“Great Product, my son was said to have allergies to gluten, he can eat the bio wheat range of flour with out breaking out, he is actually sensitive to the chemicals used in other flours. I have opened a health deli and use the bio wheat flours for my baking and wraps, and now sell you range as well. thank you. All the best for the food and wine show.”

“Module 1 of our Advanced Bread Course for Artisan bakers spent on the farm of Heinie & Tirsa Fourie outside Caledon. Just fantastic to see how the wheat is grown then milled on the farm. We stand amazed at the quality of the bread Bio-Wheat Flour gives us time and time again. Thanks guys!”
