    Wonderful Wheat

    The warthog wheat berries are some of the best I’ve milled at home! Such a lovely aroma and great flavor in my breads! Warthog wheat is a perfect for those who also love Rouge de Bordeaux! Very similar but also unique in its baking qualities. Your breads will thank you for this addition. Just try it and see!

    Glad for the opportunity to be able to buy different wheat varieties, but...

    the grains were not processed cleanly as there was a lot of husk in the mix

    Delicious!

    This is some truly delicious wheat. The description of it being an amalgamation of Rouge de Bordeaux and Red Fife is spot on, in a good way.

    Great wheat for artisan bread

    Warthog has a wonderful aroma and taste. In a 100% bake it makes a dark hearty loaf, and in a 50% bake it is great as a sweet loaf.
