WHEATGRASS GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Soak the wheat seeds in a bucket of water for 12-24 hours. Completely cover the wheat seeds with water. They will absorb the water so you may need to top up the water during this time. 

2.  Pour water over the cocoa peat slab 30 minutes before you are ready to spread the wheat seeds. The cocoa peat will absorb up to 8 times its weight in water and will expand during this time. Make sure you do not waterlog the cocoa peat as this may cause mould to grow on the seeds during germination.

3.  Spread the wheat seeds over the cocoa peat evenly. you will find there is a generous amount of seed per tray which is okay. Put the tray in a safe place where your pets wont play with it. With a spray bottle filled with water spray the seeds in the morning and evening to keep the seeds moist while they germinate. This will take 3-4 days. You will start to see a shoot from one end and the root system from the other end.

4.  Once the roots bed down and the green shoot starts to sprout you will need to water the wheatgrass every 3-4 days by checking that the roots and cocoa peat is moist and is not drying out. Dont over water the wheatgrass at this stage.

5.  At this stage the wheatgrass will enjoy some sunlight to help it to grow.

The People behind the Product

The Pet Pasture Company is based in the Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia, Australia in
the small town of Bencubbin. Our family has been farming in the area for 100 years so
growing grain is what our family knows.
Nick and I grew up in Bencubbin and are both very passionate about where we live and what
we do. We have 4 children who will tell you the farm is the best place in the world to grow
up.
Our company started because of our passion for the grain industry. We love what we do and
we know what a valuable source of nutrition young wheatgrass is for our sheep then realised
that other animals should benefit from being able to eat it as well. We started to grow
wheatgrass to feed to our chickens. They went crazy for it and our egg production increased
within a few days, the colour of the yolks went a deep golden colour the eggs tasted so
good.
We also gave some wheatgrass to friends who had pet guinea pigs and rabbits their animals
loved it too. We even found the cat and the dog enjoyed the occasional bit of wheatgrass.
Nick is a 2014 Nuffield Scholar who specialises in wheat production and nutrition so you can
be assured when you buy our product you are getting the best there is on the market.
