Sonora Wheat Berries (certified organic)


Click here to learn how to cook and sprout whole berries.

Sonora is one of the oldest surviving wheat varieties anywhere in North America. Predating Red Fife and Turkey Red wheat, it is a soft white, round winter wheat with pale red grains.

While earliest records document its existence in the mountain plains of Sonora, Mexico in the early 1700s, the wheat surely predates that era by generations. It was widely planted in California by the early 1800s.

    Delicious Flour

    I have bought milled flour for years from Barton Springs Mill. I recently started milling my own flour at home and Sonora berries are my favorite! They have a yummy flavor and are versatile, allowing me to use them in a lot of baked goods.

    So golden and delicious!

    My husband and I made biscuits and cookies. The flavor was amazing!!! The biscuits turned out a beautiful golden color and the taste was wonderful. The cookies were just chocolate chip and with this flour they taste like Snicker bars!
