Farm to Market Wheat discusses how wheat is the basis for many foods we eat, including bread and pastas. In this program viewers learn how wheat is grown, harvested, and processed into flour. “Wheat” will take viewers on field trips to see how different wheat-based products are made at a pasta factory, a bakery, and even a fortune cookie factory.
This is part of Phoenix Films’ 15-part Farm to Market series, which follows the journey of a particular agricultural product as it is grown, harvested, processed, and then transported to its final destination at the market. Through the videos, students are taken “behind the scenes” of production and manufacturing, visiting farms, ranches and orchards, as well as mills and factories.
