soft red wheat berries

from 4.50

Part of our line of Southern Ground grains and flours, these soft red wheat berries, aka pastry wheat, can be used either whole in a pilaf, added to bread (pre-soaked), or milled into a pastry flour.

Made with soft white winter wheat grown in Newfield, NY on Oechsner Farms organic acreage, this old variety of white pastry wheat is called Harrus. We grow lots of soft red wheat here in the Carolinas, but weather conditions were such that this past harvest of pastry wheat just did not quite make the cut for our quality standards. When that happens, we reach out to the greater community of regional grain endeavors. SO thank you Thor Oechsner for being there when we needed you. We’ve also planted some of this Harrus variety to see how it does down here, so fingers crossed to 2019 harvest.
