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.

Flourist is wonderful. I have transitioned to baking all my own bread, and Flourist flour has a depth of flavor I can’t get from grocery store bread. My elderly aunt and friends now keep asking me to bake for them, and they eagerly await their mini loaves whenever I can spare extras. Best, I do not get stomachaches when I eat things made from Flourist flour. (I suspect it has something to do with residual chemicals in the soil of USDA organic flour.) Thanks Shira, for working to make delivery happen. My family and friends will enjoy their holiday flour gifts as well. I also love the beans, quinoa and whole grains. Thanks all!
I love this farro. It tastes nutty and it’s chewiness gives texture and taste to everything I make. I use Instant Pot to shorten cooking time and use in place of brown rice.
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!!!
