toast and eggs – the story from field to plate

 

toast and scrambled eggs

My favourite weekend breakfast or quick lunch – toast and scrambled eggs.

I’m very lucky that I can trace my toast and eggs back to the fields they came from.This is the story  –

I keep back a little to grind into flour, which I use to make bread …

and the hens are fed a little wheat every day so they can lay these beautiful eggs

Even if you can’t trace back your breakfast to the fields it was grown in, a farmer somewhere has grown it for you.

If your family want to find out more about the story of grain-based food, from the farm to mill to plate, take a look at grainchain.com which has videos, quizzes, recipes and activities about farming, milling and baking for school-aged children.

    What a delicious looking breakfast, and a fantastic post! I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of the wheat being grown (and the domestic mill looks great!). Thanks!

    It is so nice to know where your food comes from. It is even better when you can produce it yourself. We are just starting up our farming operation. S far we have a flock of heritage Delaware Chickens, which we will replenish with a hatch this spring from our own flock. We also had Red Poll Cattle, providing us with our own, naturally raised beef this coming fall. Enjoy the journey!

    Brilliant – my children will love seeing this. We’re very lucky to have fields all round us so they do get to watch the tractors ploughing, seeding, harvesting etc from the window – and our chickens sort out the egg part of the meal! But it’s great to have a photo story to bring it all together like this. Thank you!
