Barley, Pearl - 3 lbs
Barley is a major cereal grain grown in temperate climates globally. It was one of the first cultivated grains, particularly in Eurasia as early as 10,000 years ago. It is used in soups and stews, and in barley bread of various cultures. Barley grains are commonly made into malt in a traditional and ancient method of preparation.In a 100-g serving, raw barley provides 352 Calories and is a rich source (20% or more of the Daily Value, DV) of essential nutrients, including protein, dietary fiber, the B vitamins, niacin (31% DV) and vitamin B6 (20% DV), and several dietary minerals (table). Highest nutrient contents are for manganese (63% DV) and phosphorus (32% DV). Raw barley is 78% carbohydrates, 1% fat, 10% protein, and 10% water.Hulled barley (or covered barley) is eaten after removing the inedible, fibrous, outer hull. Once removed, it is called dehulled barley (or pot barley or scotch barley). Considered a whole grain, dehulled barley still has its bran and germ, making it a nutritious and popular health food. Pearl barley (or pearled barley) is dehulled barley which has been steam processed further to remove the bran. It may be polished, a process known as "pearling". Dehulled or pearl barley may be processed into a variety of barley products, including flour, flakes similar to oatmeal, and grits.According to Health Canada and the US Food and Drug Administration, consuming at least 3 grams per day of barley beta-glucan or 0.75 grams per serving of soluble fiber can lower levels of blood cholesterol, a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Eating whole-grain barley, as well as other grains with lots of fiber, improves regulation of blood sugar (i.e., reduces blood glucose response to a meal).Consuming breakfast cereals containing barley over weeks to months also improved cholesterol levels and glucose regulation.Like wheat, rye, and their hybrids and derivatives, barley contains gluten, which makes it an unsuitable grain for consumption by people with gluten-related disorders, such as celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy sufferers, among others. Nevertheless, some wheat allergy patients can tolerate barley or rye.
Whole Wheat - 5 lbs
When eaten as the whole grain, wheat is a source of multiple nutrients and dietary fiber. Wheat is an important source of carbohydrates. In 100 grams, wheat provides 327 kilocalories and is a rich source (20% or more of the Daily Value, DV) of multiple essential nutrients, such as protein, dietary fiber, manganese, phosphorus, and niacin (table). Several B vitamins and other dietary minerals are in significant content. Wheat is 13% water, 71% carbohydrates, and 1.5% fat. Its 13% protein content is mostly gluten (75-80% of the protein in wheat). Though they contain adequate amounts of the other essential amino acids, at least for adults, wheat proteins are deficient in the essential amino acid, lysine. Whole Wheat has a very long shelf life and can be kept in a cool, dry place for years. They can be ground down to make flour or boiled as is and used as an addition to salads, or as cereal, etc.

Germination Rate: High – Open Pollinated

Seed Quality: Certified Organic - Non-GMO - Heirloom - Premium Seeds
Einkorn wheat grows very similar to other grains seeded in fall for overwintering but has a lower yield than modern wheat. Although it can tolerate poorer soils. "Einkorn" is German meaning "single grain". It is also known as "littlespelt". Trictum monococcum is considered the earliest domesticated wheat, stemming from the wild variety Trictum boeoticum. The main difference between the two is how they disperse their seeds. The head of the wild variety of einkorn burst as a way to spread the seeds while the modern einkorn seed heads stay intact. It is assumed that the domestication of this early grain came about due to the conscious or unconscious preference over the seed heads that didn't burst when falling to the ground, as it was easier for early human scavengers to collect and therefore plant.
Einkorn flour has become a popular substitute for traditional wheat flour, with significantly more protein content and less starch. Try Einkorn grain milled or in raw granola. Like other grain wheats, Einkorn wheat is popularly broadcasted directly in the fall to overwinter and ready to harvest the following summer.
For traditional garden harvests, plant 2-3 seeds 1/2 inch deep and 6-8 inch apart in fertile, loamy, well-drained soil in full sun. Seeds germinate in 5-10 days, with no thinning required. Harvest the heads of seeds when dried, hard, and heavy at the end of summer.

Buckwheat is a pseudocereal that is used in many similar ways that members of the wheat family are used. In fact, buckwheat is related to rhubarb, sorrel, and knotweed. Buckwheat was first cultivated near the Tibetan plateau in southwest China. In this area, buckwheat is seen as a staple crop and is used for its medicinal properties as well. Traditional uses of buckwheat include: Soba noodles in Japan, buckwheat Wantuo in China, Mook in Korea, Chillare in India, and porridge and soups made from buckwheat are commonly incorporated into meals in Eastern Europe. Although buckwheat is used primarily as animal feed in the United States, it is still fairly popular as a pancake ingredient. Health Benefits Buckwheat contains essential amino acids (amino acids that we need but must obtain from our diet as we do not produce them ourselves), vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. Additionally, buckwheat is a rich source of prebiotics which are necessary food sources for the beneficial bacteria in our digestive tracts. A study conducted in Spain assessed the effects that buckwheat had on the healthy bacteria count in rats. The researchers found that the rats who were given buckwheat had higher numbers of healthy bacteria, like Bifidobacteria and Enterobacteria, compared to the rats in the control group who did not receive buckwheat in their diet.
