Tour an einkorn farm with our founder

When my husband and I had the idea of growing einkorn wheat, there was very little of this grain being cultivated worldwide, so we had to coordinate the farming ourselves. Our search led us to this farm, where they had been growing ancient varieties of oats, barley, emmer, lentils, and chick peas for over thirty years. They  had never planted einkorn before, and now, only a few years later, we are working together on this project in a perfect partnership committed not only to what we are growing, but how we grow it. I can’t tell you how much respect and admiration I feel for this farm!

Today in late July, our ancient einkorn wheat is being harvested here and we are very thankful for another great year and a fine harvest. The best days on the job for me are the days I spend at the farm. As consumers, we don’t always have the chance to consider the farm behind the food, so I love to share these moments with you so you can feel a connection with the real people that make this beautiful dream a reality.  Without you, we would not have the opportunity to support this truly sustainable farm and do what feels right. Thanks so much for your continued support.

Thanks again!

    I am living in Australia, I was wondering if I can buy this product from you and ship it to Australia, or is there someone already doing it.
    My family require Gluten free products so it would be so good to have this product.

    We are living in Tuscany, and have ordered einkorn back in. California. Is it possible to buy it here at the local farm in Tuscany?

      Hi James- Thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately the einkorn is not available for purchase directly from the farm! Sorry for the inconvenience.
