When cooked, this ‘nutty brown’ variety of quinoa has an "al dente" texture, nutty flavour, and darker colour much like brown rice. Its texture and flavour distinguish it from the common white and red varieties of quinoa.

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.
