We offer a number of grain products for our customers who have a hard time obtaining them locally. These grains are nitrogen-packed for long-term storage. All our grains are sproutable, which means you can use them as sprouts for nutrition or on salads, or you can plant them and grow your own. It also means that the have not been genetically modified!
We are currently offering three grains:
Barley: Barley is an ancient grain that was the staple for many people for centuries, but has become less available in our modern times. This is unfortunate because it is more nutritious than either wheat or oats. It is also one of the few grains that can be milled into flour or rolled into flakes. Our barley is also sproutable. It can be soaked overnight to be eaten as a soft partially sprouted grain or it can be planted if you want to grow more of your own. It provides high yields and grows in almost any quality soil. This is a truly versitile and valuable grain to have. The perfect preparedness grain.
Wheat: Our wheat is cerified organic. Not only is it good for making flour for breads, it is also excellent for cooking as a cereal, to be sprouted for salads, or grown for wheat grass.
Oats: Our oat berries are certified organic. Good for rolling in our flakers to make oatmeal. Like the sproutable wheat, it can be sprouted for salads or grown. Sproutable oats are extremely hard to come by in America.
Our grains are sold in two sizes:
1 1/2 quart bags: These are a great size for the kitchen.
Nitrogen packed in convenient re-closable (ie zip-loc) 3-mil bags.
2 gallon bags: These are for larger quantities or long-term storage.
Nitrogen packed in heat-sealed heavy-duty 6-mil bags.
Why bags? We realize that many (if not most) providers of grain use 5 gal buckets with oxygen absorbers. This is a great solution. However we chose to use the bags because they are less expensive to use and are cheaper to ship (buckets incur surcharges for irregular size). This allows us to pass the savings on to you. The only disadvantage to the bags is that they will not keep out critters like rodents and they do not have a convenient carry handle. However if this is a concern for you, it is easily remedied by putting a number of bags in an inexpensive plastic tub for long term storage and portability.
