Bluebird Grain Farms Organic Whole Grain Einka, Emmer Farro, Einka & French Lentil Blend
Einka, or einkorn, is the most ancient wheat we know of. Bluebird Grain Farms in Winthrop, Washington, specializes in such things. They also specialize in plow-to-package production and organic agriculture. We love this product, which combines not just the sweetness of einka with savory french lentils, but also the way they’ve combined the ancient grain with its complementary nitrogen-fixing rotational crop. “Our goal,” they wrote in their nomination, “is to cultivate and mill the most irresistible, nutrient-rich grain we can, while leaving this land healthier for the next generation.” Amen to that!
