The Sheffield Wheat Experiment
Daniel Philpott

The Sheffield Wheat Experiment involves 200 people collectively planting wheat in their gardens, allotments or pots.

Whilst the wheat grows they will re-imagine, explore and learn how Sheffield can produce its own flour and bake its own bread.

Some of the grain will be kept for sowing the following year in order to support our long term aim of creating a Sheffield landrace of wheat.



The Sheffield Wheat Experiment is an invitation to  care, share, tend, notice, connect, challenge, change. Whilst the wheat grows we will start to explore and imagine an alternative grain economy for Sheffield, one based on food and seed sovereignty principles. In August we will come together as a collective to thresh, winnow and grind our wheat into flour.
