What's baking at The Linseed Farm?

A new bakery section at The Linseed Farm has been set up to make additional products to maximise the use of their crop and to produce healthy snacks and treats.
At the time of writing the farm’s bakery is currently producing flapjacks and Crisplins which are being tested at various food shows and events around the country and it won’t be long before they are more widely available.

Flaplins (Flapjacks)
The Linseed Farm’s flaplins are a little different to the normal flapjack, not only do they include a healthy dose of linseed meal but they also contain dark brown sugar which gives them a deeper colour. The flavour has that gorgeous almost treacly quality, you can really taste the butter too and the fresh and nutty linseed taste comes through at the end.
The texture is surprisingly quite light and crumbly, this could be something to do with the gluten free oats, but we like flapjacks that way.

Savoury Crisplins
These are little shards of the most savoury snack we’ve ever tasted.
Piles of golden linseeds are cleverly held together in a mixture made with
red bell peppers, onion, garlic, lemon juice Italian seasoning herbs and
sun-dried tomatoes.
These are a raw dehydrated food and made perfectly for a crunchy, delectably thin finish. They're very moreish too. Nibble them on their own or with a drink and if you have any left, crush some over your salad.

We are pleased to award The Linseed Farm our 'Artisan Food Trail Approved' status for their Flaplins and Savoury Crisplins.
