Reasons to have our linseed in your life, every day!

Linseed has the most amazing blue flowers that enhance the countryside for about a month every year around June or July time; it’s the most useful “happiness flower”. It is sustainable, can be planted and harvested with conventional machines and it’s part of the field rotation system that helps keep the soil in good condition.

Unlike Krill, Linseed can be stored, milled and pressed on demand with little impact on the environment and without depriving Baleen whales of their supper. This ability to store Linseed means we provide fresh oil and milled seeds for you. Our secret is freshness and freshness is vital as rancid fats of any kind are bad for you! You can easily tell if linseed is rancid as it will have a bitter metallic taste. This simple test can be performed on capsules as well. Try cutting your capsule in half and tasting its contents, if it’s horrible, do not use. Order yourself some lovely fresh ones from The Linseed Farm.

Linseeds and Linseed Meal

Linseed supports life from cradle to grave and has been promoted by the most iconic names the world has seen, such as Hippocrates, Charlemagne, Ghandi and Dr Johanna Budwig. Now in this new century, me, Durwin Banks, that is a great pedigree by anyone’s standards. So let’s follow tradition, stop raping the oceans for Krill. Get Linseed in your life. To quote Ghandi "wherever there is linseed there will be health."

Sorry Carole Vorderman you do the maths and we’ll do the Omega 3. Please leave the Krill in the sea.
