Flax seed harvest | Brouns & Co

This year has seen a good flax crop in the UK, and we've been out in the fields near Wetherby to watch the harvesting take place.

Although the way Linseed Paint is produced hasn't fundamentally changed over centuries, having an enormous Massey Ferguson harvester certainly speeds the job up a bit !

As you can see from the pictures below, the seeds are very carefully collected, ready for pressing into Raw Linseed Oil, which is a key ingredient in our Linseed Paint.
