A Field of Wheat

How do we develop cross-sector working and engage, inform and give the public agency over the way their food is grown? 

A Field of Wheat is a unique project critically framing the cultural, economic, ecological and technical practises of wheat farming in the UK today. Two award-winning artists invited people from a range of different backgrounds to invest their money, time and ideas and to work with farmer Peter Lundgren to follow the journey of the cycle of a wheat field in 2015-16.

The group includes local residents, general public from urban and rural areas, academics, farmers and industry opening up a new space for sharing informed discussion, reflection and practice relating to wheat farming, food systems and collective ownership within the context of resource depletion, climate change and global markets.
