  • Product Info

    Red Fife is an heirloom wheat with a high protein level (15.4%) and deeper, more complex flavors than common hard red winter wheats. If you mill your own flour, you’ll love the robust, slightly sweet and spicy taste of freshly milled organic Red Fife. Or you can boil the whole berries and use them in pilafs, soups, breakfast bowls, and grain salads.

    Red Fife’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.
