Sonora Wheat Berries (certified organic)


Click here to learn how to cook and sprout whole berries.

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.

    Sonora soft white wheatberries

    Great start into milling; I’ll try something different next time, I read these may be better for pastries, etc., while the hard berries better for breads.

    the wheat berries milled very nicely

    I was a little surprised to see the color variations in this bag of Sonora Wheat berries. I have ordered them before and I don’t remember the wheat berries looking speckled.

    Delicious Flour

    I have bought milled flour for years from Barton Springs Mill. I recently started milling my own flour at home and Sonora berries are my favorite! They have a yummy flavor and are versatile, allowing me to use them in a lot of baked goods.
