Welcome to Flax Farm
Flax Farm, in the heart of West Sussex, was established in 2004 to sell a range of delicious and healthful foods made from the linseed (flax seed). We have put this website together to help you and your family get the best from linseed for its great flavour and amazing health benefits. You can buy our linseed produce direct online, at selected farmers' markets or in an increasing number of shops.
- If you would like to talk to us about any aspect of using linseed please feel free to call 01403 268844.

Linseed is Extraordinary; We Do Ordinary Things With It.
As you may have gathered, at Flax Farm we are passionate about linseed!
We gently cold press the seeds in the good old-fashioned way to produce the purest, smoothest oil. We grind the seeds into a fine meal using a minimum of pressure and no heat or synthetic treatments. The meal is packaged as it is, golden or bronze, or mixed into our very own Flax Farm porridge and muesli. And of course we make our famous Flaxjacks© which are packed full of goodness and taste extraordinarily good.
How you can best use linseed depends on what particular health and wellness challenges you face, but we know that using it regularly can make a wonderful difference to your life: you will look healthier, you will feel healthier and guess what? You will be healthier!
Even if we hadn’t experienced it for ourselves we would have been convinced by the enthusiasm of our customers. So many have used linseed to overcome health problems or just because they'd heard "linseed is good for you" and found it worked. Over and over again they say, "Linseed is amazing."
Linseed really is amazing, extraordinary – we do very un-amazing and ordinary things with it. And perhaps that is part of the magic.

Linseed is just part of a balanced healthy life, exercise matters too. People were designed to be active. The body relies on us being active to make many of the body's systems work properly. At Flax Farm we have been utterly inspired by Anthony Aurelius's sensible easy approach to exercise. His book "Why Exercise?" explains why the answer is because it is good for every part of you! It is so direct it should make everyone want to do a bit more. Anthony's new Choi-bo Workout is a masterpiece in enjoyable structured exercise that develops the whole being. We have tried it, felt the benefits and are now firm fans of increased exercise Anthony style.

Video: Dr. Herb Joiner-Bey discusses his book The Healing Power of Flax: How to Protect Your Body Against Heart Disease, Arthritis, Chronic Pain and Inflammation With This Remarkable Food. Flax and Flaxseed Oil are nature's richest source of omega-3s and contain twice as much omega-3 fatty acids as fish oil products - without the aftertaste and at a more affordable price. The Healing Power of Flax reveals how this important missing nutrient in your diet can help prevent heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, chronic pain, and inflammation. Flax is also an incredibly rich source of a group of compounds, called lignans, that may prevent certain types of cancer, especially breast and prostate cancer.
