I have a few reasons/excuses to use it.
Grew some old type wheat, called Red Fife. It was grown up here between 1840 and 1900 mainly.
It hasn't been messed with like many modern wheats, and is supposed to be good tasting for bread, with only a fraction of the glutens of most modern wheat.
Wheat up here is border-line to grow, but if it's cut with a binder, it kind of gives you a couple more weeks to work with (if you know what I mean.)
Also, we wanted to thatch an old fashioned house we are making, (just to see if we can!...wattle and daub walls etc!)...and needed straw that hasn't been combined.
Need a thresher next....
