One of the earliest domesticated cereal grains, emmer farro is an heirloom variety of wheat that was once a staple of ancient Roman diets. Though largely overlooked these days in favor of higher-yielding and more easily hulled durum wheat, emmer farro is still widely consumed in Ethiopia and the Central Mediterranean region, where it is prized for its flavor and nutritional value.
What are Heirloom Grains?

Known as a dietary staple for thousands of years, our ancestors once relied upon these ancient grain varieties to provide nourishment and sustenance.
