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.

    I’ve used the turkey red wheat flour for two different applications now and I love it. My neopolitan pizzas in my wood fired oven are way more flavorful, and the pancakes I made this morning were absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this flour and this company. Keep doing what you’re doing BSM.

    Amazing flour

    Used the flour to make bread in my bread machine. I have some experience making bread via machine as I have worn out 3 bread makers over the last 30 years. The loaf turned out about half the size of sandwich bread but was absolutely the best tasting bread I have ever made. I expected a smaller loaf to be dense and heavy in fact it was just the opposite. So if you are after a healthy flour choice that makes delicious bread look no further.

    Makes a great sourdough!

    I used this in my sourdough recipe and it turn out wonderful. I do recommend if you plan on using a lot of this flour that you increase your hydration percentage.
