Description:

The wheel of change has not affected one of the first and finest grains grown by our early farmers more than 2000 years ago.  However, Farro vanished from modern agriculture due to its protective husk that required more complex dehulling and milling machinery.

 

Farro’s recent resurgence can be attributed to the current growth in the number of health conscious consumers looking for healthier food alternatives. Farro is high in fibre, rich in B complex vitamins, protein, and zinc; it also has softer gluten that is gentler to the digestive system than what’s found in wheat.

 

Mount Zero Farro has a delicious nutty flavour with a chewy texture, and can be substituted for rice, lentils, couscous and pasta.  It can also be added to soups and salads to add body and texture.
