Heritage Wheat - Sirvinta


Sirvinta wheat is a heritage wheat that is making a resurgence here in Maine thanks to the efforts of the Maine Grain Alliance. Richard Robert's of the alliance planted a plot of Sirvintan and 3 other varieties on my land in the fall of 2016. In this video he is seen hand harvesting the wheat during the summer of 2017. The opening sequences of Sirvinta sprouting is my own plot planted in September of 2017 for harvest late next summer. I will be filming more life stages of the wheat as it progresses.
