We use about 25 cups of flour a week, so would need about 17 cups of wheat berries a week.
There are 52 weeks in a year, so that’s 884 cups of wheat berries a year.
884 cups is about 6 bushels.
The approximate yield of one acre of wheat in western Iowa is 5o bushels. So for us to grow 6 bushels, we’ll need to plant about 0.12 acres.
There are 43,560 square feet to an acre. So 0.12 acres is 5227 square feet.
So if we have a square plot of wheat, it should be approximately 72 feet long and wide to provide us with flour for a year. Plus a little extra to have seed for the following year.
We’ve got space for that.
