Heritage Wheat Grown in the Heartland

Wisconsin has a rich heritage as a wheat-growing state, and over the years many interesting varieties of bread wheat have been grown here.  It is my goal to dig into the past and find wheat varieties that produce healthy, good-tasting wheat that grows well in organic farming systems.  Below are several current offerings.  Please explore and consider bringing one of these gems home to your kitchen!

2 lb bag, Wisconsin No 2 Flour, 92% extraction, FREE SHIPPING

Wisconsin No 2 is a selection of Turkey Red that began in 1905, when the University of Wisconsin sought out a Turkey Red cultivar suitable for growing in Wisconsin's climate. Wisconsin No 2 was released in 1917 and was grown in the state for a few years until the Wisconsin market changed over to soft red winter wheat around WWII. In 2015 we requested a 5 gm sample of Wisconsin No 2 from the USDA Small Grains Collection and began growing it out. Wisconsin No 2 produces flour with 1-2% higher protein than the Ehmke Turkey Red we have been selling up until now. The 2020 crop, although small, is excellent quality. It came out of our Newman Rd field which has been chemical free for 15 years
