Premium, 100% traceable, Canadian-grown Farro.
Our Farro is organically grown by Brian Schaff in Southey, Saskatchewan.
Farro, also called Emmer, is an ancient wheat strain similar to the very first wheat cultivated by ancient Mediterranean civilizations. Farro dominated the fields of the Near East, northern Africa, and Europe until early farmers of Ancient Rome crossed wheat species to produce modern strains like durum.
Chefs and home cooks around the world are rediscovering Farro as a hearty side dish, a protein replacement or a salad complement. Farro is very high in protein, with strong, cohesive gluten. It makes beautiful pasta flour—Italians have been making pasta with Farro for centuries.
To cook, combine 1 part Farro with 4 parts water and boil for 45-60 minutes, or until tender but firm.
Our Farro is perfect for grain salads and risottos. Browse our favourite Farro recipes here.

Ordering and shipment was extremely easy and efficient. I love that it is from Canadian farmers and you get their “story” with every product.
This Farro is the best! A great mouth chew vs the soggy brand x from the grocery store. My Kale salad with farro recipe just got even better. Next up, Farro risotto!
Wonderful, love that’s it’s grown right where I live!!!
Farro is one of my favourite grains — since it has the same cook time as lentils, I often cook and eat them together. Not easy to find in grocery stores, I’m really happy to buy it from Flourist.
I used my Whispermill and milled some fresh flour for pasta. Farro flour is my favorite for pasta making.
