Regional bread and special beer, made from locally grown grains.

Healthy regional bread and beer, made from historic grains on fertile arable land where birds, insects, bees and butterflies thrive. A landscape with swaying cornfields full of blooming rare field herbs. Who doesn’t want this? Unfortunately, this image has practically disappeared from the Netherlands.

In our Dutch fields we almost only see silage maize. Livestock feed. And we are facing a nitrogen crisis. Circular agriculture with heather grazing and manure from flocks of sheep on grain fields is the best way to clean up nitrogen. From the same field, the bread and beer comes from swaying wheat fields such as Veluws Kruiprogge and summer barley.

From 2017, Marcel van Silfhout took charge of his personal initiative to start arable farming. The theme of farmers, nature, our landscape, politics and actually the whole of society is the theme of Marcel van Silfhout’s new book to be published in 2021. GraanGeluk is about a better future.

With Graangeluk you sow on healthy fields, restoration of biodiversity and opportunities for insects, wild bees, butterfly and field birds such as partridge and skylark.

Your much needed financial contribution will be used to restore the fields in a natural, agro-ecological way, to sow with rare Dutch crops and to harvest these ancient grains for healthy artisanal regional bread and natural beer.
