Flax Seed and Wheat Grass are an Earth pony couple who first appear in My Little Pony Micro-Series Issue #3 and later make several additional appearances in the comics. They are the owners of "Flax & Wheat's New Age All-Natural Wellness Center".

Depiction in the comics

Flax Seed and Wheat Grass first appear in the Micro-Series Issue #3 story How Rarity Got Her Groovy Back. Flax picks an overworked Rarity up and carts her off to the Wellness Center run by him, Wheat Grass, and their family. From his first appearance on, Flax is depicted as a relaxed if absentminded type, with scruffy hair, a headband, and stereotypical hippie speech mannerisms. For example, he gets distracted by a butterfly fluttering by. Wheat Grass has a very long mane and tail and wears elaborate eyeliner and small round sunglasses.

When Rarity wonders about the rundown state of the spa (which looks like a normal small farm), a nervous Wheat Grass explains that they're "renovating". Flax and Wheat introduce Rarity to their hippie-like ways; each day they have her work hard on the farm from morning to evening, and each night they give her an all-natural beauty and cosmetics product, which they market as "Goops for Stuff" with little success. Fed up with being subjected to manual labor while on vacation and the very humble commodities, Rarity demands a refund from Flax and Wheat. The two nervously admit they already spent the bits Rarity paid. Wheat Grass eventually confesses that, due to a terrible deal they made with the Flim Flam brothers, they're about to lose the farm to Filthy Rich's Barnyard Bargains.

Rarity feels sorry for Flax Seed and Wheat Grass, while impressed with the quality of their Goops and its production values, and uses her business acumen to help them, coming up with a more compelling presentation for their Goops and encouraging Flax and Wheat to raise their prices to more reasonable levels. The face-lifted Goops business eventually gets them the attention of the upper class of Canterlot. Having made enough bits to save the farm several times over, Flax Seed and Wheat Grass thank Rarity for everything she's done. Hoity Toity even recognizes Flax as the next "pony everypony should know".

In Friendship is Magic Issue #9, a bag labeled with Flax and Wheat's "F&W" logo is carried by Rose at the Summer Wrap-Up Festival and Hoedown on page 3, Flax Seed himself appears selling his and Wheat Grass' Goops on page 6, and a bag labeled with Flax and Wheat's "F&W" logo is also carried by Issue 10 Unnamed Mare - Lamp.

Personality

Flax Seed and Wheat Grass bear personality traits and clothing styles reminiscent of the hippie subculture of the 1960s. They frequently speak of self-rejuvenation and are shown to value keeping everything all-natural. Flax Seed is particularly eccentric, as evidenced by his often wide-eyed expression, denunciation of "the establishment", getting creeped out by a sign of Filthy Rich, and constantly using the word "like" in his sentences—which gets on other ponies' nerves.
