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.

    Goodness gracious, what a blessing!

    So grateful for the ability to purchase Einkorn berries, a true super food. I use a Wonder Mill for grinding, and make fresh baked goods on a nearly daily basis. Thanks, Barton Springs Mill.

    I've been making sourdough for 40 years (thank G-d). The best is with einkorn grain. Which makes sense as it has not been hybridized like our other wheats. It is more expensive, so I end up using half einkorn and half regular organic wheat. Still good!

    Great source for Einkorn Wheat Berries

    Einkorn is my favorite flour, and I mill my wheat berries for fresh whole grain flour. I like to soak/sprout the wheat berries to make a sprouted mash that I incorporate into the main flour mix for greater nutrient bioavailability. Barton Spring wheat berries seem fresher that other sources, for great tasting artisan bread. I’ll buy again.

    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.
