Emmer Farro Ancient Heirloom Wheat
A very versatile, delicious and nutritious grain. One of the earliest domesticated cereal grains that has a robust texture and sweet nutty flavor perfect for breads, flours, salads and stews.
The hulls make it especially good for brewing beer, and it is also great animal feed. Once a food staple of Roman diets.
Gives good yields in poor soils.
Plant it about 1/4" deep, in well drained soil after the last frost. It will take 120 days to have nicely developed heads, harvest when seeds no longer have a milky appearance when cut open (when grain is good and dry)
Emmer is a “hulled” wheat. The hull can protect the grain from stray chemical contamination and insects making it an easier grain to grow grain especially for organic growers.
Seed can be stored for many years in a cool dry place.
Makes excellent cover for quail and other wildlife.
