Emmer is an old grain variety. So old that it is referred to as one of the ancient grains. It was cultivated from around 9700 BC in the so-called Levant, an area within the Fertile Crescent that translates into Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon today.
Emmer is more popularly known as farro, and closely related to durum. It is rich in resistant starch, minerals, fiber, carotenoids, and antioxidant compounds.
Jacob Jørgensen used to be a social worker, who helped and collaborated with homeless people. The part where they went out to do farm work was rewarding for everybody. Eventually, one thing led to another. Today, Jacob owns and runs Lammehave Økologi—an organic farm on Falster—with eight employees that have special needs.
The 32 acres that encompass Lammehave Økologi grow older and ancient grain varieties. But they also grow vegetables, and clover for the sheep. Jacob practices some regenerative farming principles. For example, his chickens range free amongst the farm’s fruit trees during the days, where they forage, peck and fertilize.
The farm has its own stone milling facility, where the grains are stone ground. This gives, as always, a tastier and more nutrient-dense product of very high quality.
