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.

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.
Ordered a number of items online. All were as expected and arrived fairly quickly, even under the strain of the COVID 19 load. Well done!
We couldn't wait to get yet another bag of canadian farro from Flourist. Nothing compares in the grocery stores and it is always a huge hit at home.
I use Farro for salads and for baking. I always look for grains that don't cook out to mush. The Farro Grain I bought from Flourist is superb; it is fresh and cooks beautifully and has a very delicate taste that makes my salads absolutely delicious. I will definitely buy them again.
