Treat yourself to our wheatberries — a natural source of nutrition and fiber. They are grown with no herbicides or insecticides and are a combination of three hard wheat varieties. We sell them by the gallon bag (approximately 5 pounds), or in larger amounts as needed.
Wheat available only for a limited time in the fall.
Hard wheat is higher in protein and tends to grow in colder climates; it is often used for baking bread. The wheat can be easily ground in a coffee grinder or other home grinder and substituted for other flour in recipes. It gives a wonderful nutty flavor and texture.
Whole wheatberries can also be used in lots of ways, including cold salads. The term wheatberry refers to the entire wheat kernel (except for the hull), including the bran, germ, and endosperm. They can be cooked and used much as you would bulgar, rice or other grains. They are a fantastic source of nutrition and fiber. They are often used in tabouli, chili, soups and with vegetables in pilaf.
The dry wheatberries will last a long time in a sealed container. The ground flour should be used fresh or stored in the freezer.
