Yecora Rojo, a favorite of West Coast artisan sourdough bakers (i.e. Tartine) was developed by the International Maize & Wheat Improvement Center in Cooperation with the Mexican ministry of Agriculture in Mexico.

It was first received in California in 1970. Yecora Rojo is a standout performer for bread making; it is texturally smooth and lightweight, while exuding buttery and creamy flavors that enhance the end results of any baked item. Out of all the varietals we offer, Yecora Rojo is a Mill favorite, and staff pick!

    Delicious.

    I bought the Yecora Red to make some artisan sourdough & it came out so delicious. It has a wonderful nuttiness with great complex flavors. Just love it. Can’t wait to try some of the “00” sifts.

    Great oven spring

    Made my sourdough with a mixture of white bread flour and Yecora Rojo. The oven spring and flavor were great! Very pleased with the results...

    Yecora Rojo

    I have to say, this flour is really buttery and blends well with anything. I used a little danko rye, some spelt and Yecora. Beautiful creamy sourdough wheat bread. It's my new bread, and I'm loving what it does to the crust.

    New Favorite Shirt

    This is my new favorite shirt. They are very soft and comfortable, although they are a tad bit long for my taste. Not a big deal by any means - I've had it two weeks and already worn it 3 or 4 times.

    Just what I wanted!

    After having blue cornbread on a trip to Colorado, I looked everywhere for the cornmeal to make it after returning home to Boston. Luckily I found it through Barton Springs Mill, and it arrived a few days after ordering. I've already used it several times for several different recipes. It's awesome, and exactly the flavor and quality I was looking for. Highly recommend!!

    What a taste

    I baked already two sourdough loafs with the flour and the taste and smell is amazing.

    Helped with colic from breast milk!

    I have three kids and breast fed all of them and I always had to watch my wheat intake otherwise my babies were gassy. I thought for whatever reason it was the gluten but then I learned that it’s actually how the wheat is made and what pesticides were used that upsets the babies and the mamas through the breast milk. So this third time around I have been searching for an organic wheat flour that wouldn’t upset my 6 month old’s tummy through the breast milk and I say success! I have baked muffins and cakes with this flour and have no complaints! If you want a fluffy result I’d recommend sifting as I would with any flour. Very happy and will buy again
