The Millet King Farm

Reynald is a fourth generation farmer, living and farming in a small French settlement known as small town, St – Claude, Manitoba, established in 1892 and located 80 km’s West of the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
On the Millet King farm, Reynald seeds 2 super foods oil grain crops. They are Conventional Red Proso Cerise Millet and Conventional Omega Gold Flax. The Millet King uses only the highest of quality seed to be seeded on his farm. The crops starts with a well prepared seed bed and hundreds of love and tender care steps taken throughout it’s growing season to produce the highest quality crop possible. At a young stage during it’s growing season, Millet King walks through all of his fields looking and watching as the crop grows, but really starts to monitor the crop at 70 plus days. Reynald states the longer the crop stands up, better quality you get, meaning consistent size in kernels and color, therefore easier to harvest, clean, and mill, therefore delivering a supreme product.
All millet and flax crops are harvested using a Case International combine due to it’s rotary mechanism, as to not skin the seed, 60% of it’s nutrition is in the hull of the seed, so it’s very important to keep it intact. All millet and flax are cleaned to very high standards using air, gravity table and a color sorter delivering a pure product therefore fetching a premium price.
