Einkorn, also known as Farro Piccolo, is an ancient grain that has a unique flavor with a beautiful golden hue. It is known to have a higher percentage of protein than modern red wheat and is considered more nutritious containing higher levels of fat, phosphorous, potassium, pyridoxine, and beta-carotene. It works wonders in a variety of different baking applications from scones to bread but works best when blended with a higher protein flour.
From the Heart of the Willamette Valley in Oregon, we are proud to offer a full line of Camas Country Mill Artisan Flours. The wheat used in these flours is grown and milled locally using a stone grist mill, the most ancient form of flour mills. Using a stone mill, the flour is produced by the grinding of grain between stationary and rotating stones. The entire grain kernel in its natural, original state - bran, germ, and endosperm, is ground. The result is naturally whole grain flour with all of the inherent nutrition, vitamins, and minerals of the original grain. Camas Country flours contain nothing more and nothing less than whole grains providing customers with a local, high-quality, and nourishing product that stands apart from others.
Camas Country Mills wheat and grains are grown by Hunton Farms in Junction City, Oregon. This third-generation family farm is one of the first in the Willamette Valley to transition from growing grass seed to growing grains and beans. The Hunton family is committed to building a strong, sustainable and vibrant regional grain economy.
