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.

    The flour is incredible! The bread we’ve baked was delicious and testy!

    Excellent for sourdough!

    I’ve been using this for sourdough pizza crusts and they turn out awesome!

    New pizza staple

    I'll never be able to make pizza without this flour ever again. It was so easy to work with, and there were more subtle flavors than I even knew what to do with. I found myself using fewer toppings so I could taste the dough more (and up until now pizza dough was just a vehicle for toppings).

    Beautiful flour. Made delicious sourdough. Tried the 00 think I’ll try regular next time for a heartier bread. Looking forward to trying other flours
