Doves Farm have been specialists in organic and gluten free flour since 1978, located at their farm near Hungerford on the Wiltshire/Berkshire border. In addition to great tasting bread flours, they make a variety of organic and gluten free products including, biscuits, cookies, cereal bars, breakfast cereals, pasta & baking requisites, drawing the majority of these and many raw materials from the local Wessex area. Doves Farm are dedicated to upholding organic, ethical and Fairtrade agricultural systems, nurturing partnerships with suppliers and customers and supporting local community projects, and have had Soil Association approval since they were founded. Gluten and wheat free cookies are produced in a separate bakery using the traditional wire-cut method and baked on specially lined trays.
Our award winning gluten free and organic Brown Rice Penne allows those who are avoiding wheat and gluten to enjoy authentic pasta meals. There's no need to change your cooking or eating habits with this pasta and guests may not even realise that what they are eating is gluten free.
Brown rice (or "hulled" or "unmilled" rice) is whole grain rice. It has a mild, nutty flavour, and is chewier and more nutritious than white rice.
With the literal meaning of "quills" in Italian, the name describes this substantial pasta's hollow and diagonal-cut shape, similar to an old fashioned pen tip. Penne comes smooth or ridged and is best served with meat, fish, or hearty vegetable dishes, can be baked in a casserole and is also suitable for frying.
