Turkey Red can be traced to Crimea between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov in the early 19th century and earlier to Turkey to the south of the Black Sea.

Mennonite immigrants brought it to the United States in the early 1870s, introducing it to the areas surrounding Marian, Reno and Harvey Counties in Kansas.

It became the dominant hard red winter wheat in Kansas and throughout the Great Plains in the 1920s. Excellent “wheaty” flavor, very good milling and baking properties.

    Turkey Red

    We like turkey red for all of our baking, cookies, bread, muffins, cakes...there have been only two times that I wished for a little whiter or less flavored flour, and that is for pie crust and hamburger buns. It makes really good bread, cookies and cakes.

    The last two orders were incorrect. First order we ordered 3, 5lb All Purpose flower we got 2 1/2lb instead. We were charged the higher price. Second ordered we ordered 6, 5lb All Purpose flower and we got 6, 2 1/2lb instead.We were charged the higher price again. We would love a response to this problem. [****] Doyce

    These make the best hummus.

    Canned chickpeas just don’t measure up. These, plus Soom Tahini, plus a proprietary blend of citrus juice 🍋, olive oil, diced chilis 🌶 and spices, make the best hummus ever. And don’t even get me started on couscous salad. Happy and satisfied customer. Will absolutely order again.

    I’m enjoying using your flours again especially to make breads of Italian and French parameters and types of European flours, learning curves!

    Outstanding! Nutty flavor!

    Wow! I have every wheat grain Barton offers and several not offered but this is my favorite! This has a beautiful nutty taste unique to it. I wish berries were available!!! Outstanding and well worth your trying it.
