  • Product Info

    Red Fife has deeper, more complex flavors than common hard red winter wheats, and breads made with it bake up moister, with a cohesive crumb. Because Red Fife has high gluten potential, it can be used by itself or mixed with low gluten flours such as rye.

    Red Fife wheat’s origin is unknown, but it is believed that Mennonite farmers in Poland grew the wheat that was shipped to David Fife, a Scottish immigrant in Canada, in the mid-1800s. Fife then grew the wheat and shared it with other farmers, calling it Red Fife because of its distinctive color. Red Fife set the baking and milling standards from the 1860s to the turn of the 20th century, and has been placed on the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity’s “Ark of Taste. It is thought to be a relative of Halychanka, a Ukrainian Heritage wheat, prized for its rich flavors and excellent baking qualities.

Goodness, Naturally

My baking journey finally brought me to explore better flour, and Janie's Mill Red Fife brought nutty, heartiness to my wimpy bread! The Red Fife and Hi-Protein Bread Flours are my absolute favorite flours now for our everyday loaves. These flours significantly increase my rise, and I'm not sure why--their freshness and grind? AMAZING quality I feel good about using.

I have been using the spelt flour to make sourdough sandwich loaves in Pullman loaf tins. The crust is delightfully crunchy and the crumb is soft and chewy. My kids (ages 3, 5, and 9) are enjoying their sandwiches which is about as high a rating you can hope to achieve. Will definitely be purchasing more. Thank you!

One of my favorite bread flours

I always have Red Fife berries and flour on hand and add the whole grain flour in artisan's breads, pizza, and other bakes, as well as feeding my starter. I love the flavor and high protein performance for extensibility and elasticity. Red Fife is a great, flavorful performer.
