  • 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.

Red Fife

I love Red Fife more than any other flour I have used in my 40 years of baking.

Wonderfully flavorful

I love this Red Fife! I have baked until now with another Red Fife and I have to say that Janie’s Mill’s Red Fife is far better. I will stick with it.

Thank you!

So very excited when my mom brought me sample flours to try down in Mississippi! Having to go gluten free 2 years ago was tough cooking for a family of 5.
Made our favorite cookies with this. They were richer and better than ever before!
I’m so grateful for your business, hard work and commitment to excellence!

Part of my sourdough bread recipe

I like to add some red fife flour to my sourdough recipe. I use mostly high protein bread flour and then a blend of other flours , and red fife is a good addition.
