From German, meaning literally “single grain,” Einkorn wheat was one of the first plants to be domesticated and cultivated. The earliest clear evidence of the domestication of Einkorn dates from 8,650 BC to 7,950 BC. Einkorn has a higher percentage of protein than modern red wheats and is considered more nutritious because it also has higher levels of fat, phosphorus, potassium, pyridoxine, and beta-carotene. It works well in hearth breads (up to 30%).

Also known as Farro Piccolo, Einkorn is a grain derived from Grano Farro, or Farro Grain. 

Farro is shaped like rice, with a golden brown hue and a nutty flavor. The texture gives a slight chewy feel once cooked. You can prepare Einkorn and other Farro grains easily, going well with a variety of meals. From soups and salads, to side dishes and hot breakfast, the possibilities are exciting.

    Awesome Customer Service

    I screwed up and ordered grain instead of flour. When I went on the website to reorder, I discovered it was out of stock. Emmy H saved my screw-up and sent me replacement flour! Outstanding customer service!!

    What a pleasure to grind the berries and incorporate this freshly ground wheat into an artisan loaf. I promptly ordered a variety of other berries. Fresh ground is the best!
