From German, meaning literally “single grain,” Einkorn wheat was one of the first plants to be domesticated and cultivated. The earliest clear evidence of the domestication of Einkorn dates from 8,650 BC to 7,950 BC. Einkorn has a higher percentage of protein than modern red wheats and is considered more nutritious because it also has higher levels of fat, phosphorus, potassium, pyridoxine, and beta-carotene. It works well in hearth breads (up to 30%).

Also known as Farro Piccolo, Einkorn is a grain derived from Grano Farro, or Farro Grain. 

You can prepare Whole Berries as Farro. The texture is beautifully bouncy, with a slight chew once cooked. You can prepare Einkorn and other Farro grains easily, going well with a variety of meals. From soups and salads, to side dishes and hot breakfast, the possibilities are exciting.

    First Order from Barton Springs Mill

    I was very happy with the quality of the Einkorn berries and with the result in my baking with them. I am also very happy with their customer service. My order was mishandled and damaged by the postal service, and when I let them know, they sent another order which I received without any problem. I will use them as my permanent source for excellent quality products.

    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!

    THE BEST

    I am not a veteran bread baker however I have made my fair share of sourdough bread from freshly milled grains. I must say that Barton Springs Einkorn Einkorn wheat berries have made the very best tasting bread for me. I have tried Einkorn from other vendors and find Barton Springs to be the best.

    TAM 105 Flour
    Marj Krause
    Great flour for gluten intolerant tummies

    Used the TAM 105 for banana bread. The bread turned out better than normal. It had the extra flavor this flour brings and no tummy issues. I then ordered TAM 105 00 to use for pizza dough

    Made standard sourdough loaf with this new flour from Barton Springs, It came out a little dry on first round of kneading. I added a few squirts from spray bottle to get texture just right.

    This rose nicely after 12 hours. I might add a little more water next time. It was not as elastic as some of the earlier new flours I have tried. It also has a redish tinge, which is really interesting. Not bright enough for me to notice (colorblind) but I noticed a slightly different shade and my wife confirmed it was definitely a bit redish.

    This had a great rise overnight. Nice dome, and still felt firm. It's very big, but my hope is that it won't cave in during the bake.

    It was a bit over proofed and black on top. Could be the very overraised dome. But the bread as a whole was great. Worked like a bread flour, but had a great whole-wheat flavor. This is far more unique than the other fancy flours I have tried in the past. I could see making special orders of this variety.

    I can't imagine baking cookies, pies, and cakes without Sonoran Flour!

    This order of flour arrived at 6:30 pm then night before Thanksgiving. I refused to start my baking before it arrived. It didn't disappoint and everyone raved about the pie crusts as well as the pies. The Sonoran wheat flour was fresh and wonderful!

    Wrens Abruzzi Rye Flour
    Laura Sanders
    Great flavor!

    This was my first time working with rye flour, and I wasn't sure how well it would work in a sourdough loaf. I was pleasantly surprised by the freshness and flavor of the Wrens Abruzzi.
