Why Gluten Free?
Rebecca started at farmers markets in 2000 selling bread. Being constantly asked for bread, free from wheat or gluten, she decided there was a need for a gluten free range of flours. Realising that pure oats were gluten free, the first crop of oats was planted in 2008 from which a range of porridge, muesli and granolas were created…then came gluten free breakfast cereals, porridge oats, granolas, beers, ciders, bread and oat milk drink.
