Sonora is one of the oldest surviving wheat varieties anywhere in North America. Predating Red Fife and Turkey Red wheat, it is a soft white, round winter wheat with pale red grains.

While earliest records document its existence in the mountain plains of Sonora, Mexico in the early 1700s, the wheat surely predates that era by generations. It was widely planted in California by the early 1800s.

    Perfect for everyday baking!

    If you're looking for buttery flavor and beautiful color in your baking Sonora is for you! I've made pancakes, crepes, biscuits and breads using this flour and have been super impressed with its performance. For long-fermenting sourdough loaves I've been incorporating half Sonora and half hard red wheat flour for improved strength. Super happy with this variety and definitely rec!

    I’m a new to the baking world and I looked long and hard for trust worthy companies. There are so many yucky stuff in our foods now. It’s even difficult to find clean ingredients! Hence I’m grateful for this family-owned company that cares about their products and what the production process may or may not do it. FOOD IS SO IMPORTANT and Barton Spring Mills knows this too. So glad you have high values! Keep at it! I’ll continue to buy my flours here. PS: I LOVE your educational videos and recipes
