Premium, 100% traceable, Canadian-grown Farro.
Our Farro is organically grown by Monty Sandor in southern 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.
To keep our products at their best, store in a sealed container in a cool, dark place.

Delish and grown local
We lean on farro when we need a starch other than rice. It’s nutty and friendly as a base for many dishes. Love it under a locally caught piece of fish! Yummy.
Great texture and flavour and very easy to cook and incorporate into recipes.
Love this faro
I’ve been buying this for a few years now and absolutely love it. Have tried other brands but nothing beats Canadian. So tasty and easy to use.
Just what I wanted
It's fresh. Flavourful and aromatic once cooked. Just that crunchy/chewy texture I was looking for. I use it to make big batches of salad and that's lunch for days. Will be ordering again.
Farro is new to me
I wanted to incorporate more whole grains in my diet and decided to try farro. It is so good and I love buying Canadian and supporting the farmers that are on the labels. I am so glad I discovered Flourist. Thank you. Delivery was fairly quick too.
