Einkorn flour is perfect for any kind of baking including yeast-based and sourdough breads. When not mixed with other flours, this einkorn flour will have a different flavour, almost like cinnamon. Einkorn wheat was one of the first wheat species grown for food, dating back 5,000 – 12,000 years ago. Ancient grains tend to be higher in mineral content and protein than many common wheat varieties. Einkorn is not gluten-free but does tend to have lower gluten than modern wheat.
Nestled in the rolling hills and forests of Riding Mountain near Erickson, Manitoba, Tamarack Farms raise a diverse range of plants and animals, including quinoa and other grains, pastured heritage pigs, native grasses and forbs, and hay for local cattle feed. Fitting our farming activities into the natural and biodiverse landscape is very important here, so as to maintain local elk populations, aspen parkland forests, and beaver ponds and creeks. In 2017, one quarter of our farm gained certified organic status. Our quinoa and other grains are certified organic as of the fall of 2018. These foods are safe in gluten-intolerant diets.
