A proud father of four, Milton Wheeler, strived to provide his family with the very best.

As a child alongside his father in the 1940’s, he farmed the lush pastures of the Manawatu region in New Zealand. The use of pesticides and fertilisers were simply not an option, instead, relying on organic farming methods to ensure his family and the broader community received a regular supply of wholesome and nutritional grains and vegetables, was his primary focus.

He refined the art of stoneground milling to ensure the full goodness of grain he so tediously grew, was retained. No additives or bleaching agents were added to his flour.

“Earth Origin is a tribute to my father as we continue his legacy of providing our customers with the very best in bakery mixes produced like it used to be…no chemical preservatives, no genetically modified ingredients. 100% pure goodness”
– Geoff Wheeler (Managing Director | Earth Origin)


With our roots firmly planted in farming, we truly understand just how important wholesome food is. Sadly, the food industry has, as a whole, adopted a policy of “make it last longer” and in so doing loading food with chemical preservatives and the like.

Our approach is quite the opposite, as we believe less is more, in much the same way as it used to be.

Made with good old fashioned stoneground flour, we use the best non-GMO ingredients, with NO added preservatives. We have also replaced a high percentage of salt with natural flavours sourced from fruit.

In short, we have tried to keep it as simple as possible. Our superior range of products contains no hidden nasties or genetically modified ingredients. Enjoy knowing that what you see is what you get. Simple and natural.
