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. Known for its excellent “wheaty” flavor and very good milling and baking properties. It can be used as bread flour in any recipe.

    Love Barton Springs Mill!

    I am totally enjoying grinding my own grain and making my own flour. My breads are amazing. I leave most of the bran in the flour so I have more fiber content in my bread. It’s hard to pick a winner. But I love the Turkey Red, Yecora Rojo, Rouge de Bordeaux and the Danko Rye. Since each has a different protein content I sometimes mix them. You guys rock! Great online experience too.

    Fantastic taste

    Wonderful stuff!

    Fragrant and great texture - I did a 50%-50% blend with Sonora for a sourdough that was exceptional.

    I've been making bread for 60 years. Never seen anything like this!

    White bread, 'whole wheat' bread, and mostly half white and half 'whole'. 'Whole wheat' flour is finicky to work with and rough, does not rise well.
    This flour is a whole nother ball game. Smooth as silk, rises like a dream, don't have to mix in white flour to get it to come out right. I have made bread, pancakes, gingerbread and a Dutch baby. Every thing came out beautiful, tasty, filling and (this is so strange) my stomach feels contented.

    I have also made a loaf of bread with Yecora Rojo. Oh, my goodness, it tastes so good. I'll be trying most of your flour varieties. But I think Yecora may be my bread flour.

    Excellent Einkorn Berries & Great Customer Service!

    We live locally in Austin and wanted to pick up some Einkorn berries (we make sourdough Einkorn bread and love it) and customer service was quick to reply and get my order ready for pickup! Very friendly and helpful. Excellent wheat berries without hulls (we’ve had an issue buying from other companies where the hills were still intact on a lot of the berries. We love Barton Springs Mill!

    Stone Ground Cornmeal
    Gena Kearse
    Nice surprise

    The Bloody Butcher corn meal I purchased arrived neatly packaged and ready to use. It mixed well with my corn bread recipe and it turned out smooth, rich texture and delicious. I'd definitely buy it again.

    very satisfied with these grits.....plain and simple.....

    Love white wheat berries!

    Loving the new Big Country white wheat berries from Barton Springs Mills! It has been 20+ yrs since I had access to and used white wheat for baking, I had forgotten the beauty of the flour. Thank you!

    Beautiful Grain!!

    Besides being beautiful, my sourdough starter couldn’t be happier. Have already made bread, and it is super complex and smells like toasty heaven. The best part is the heritage and organic stewardship, which we all need more of in our current mono-culture world. Thanks Barton Springs for all your hard work on this one!!
