Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Grown in Washington State, our whole-grain Organic Farro (pronounced FAHR-oh) is a nutritious and delicious addition to your diet. This whole-grain is even healthier than the pearled version. Farro fed the Roman Legions, was used as money during the height of the Roman Empire, and Farro kernels were even found in Egyptian tombs! So pharaohs cherished farro too (pun intended).
What's Farro Like?Farro is similar to a lighter brown rice and has a complex, nutty taste with oat and barley undertones. However, farro lacks the heaviness of many whole-wheat grains and tastes more elegantly. Farro behaves much like risotto, but doesn't become gummy. Instead, it retains its tender, distinct bite, even if it sits awhile after cooking.
Our organic farro is the true version of farro - Triticum dicoccum.
Farro Cooking Instructions
Soak farro in water overnight to reduce overall cooking time. To cook farro on the stove top, combine 3 parts liquid to one part farro. Bring the farro to a boil over high heat, and then reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for approximately 30-45 minutes, or until the grain is tender.
Health Benefits of FarroFarro is rich in fiber, protein, iron, magnesium, and vitamin B, and is almost always grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers. With 4 grams of protein per serving, it's a great plant-based protein source for vegans and vegetarians. Because it is so easily digested and low in gluten, farro can often be eaten by people who are normally gluten-intolerant.
Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes to use this ancient grain especially for salads. For a quick side dish, cook farro and then toss it with your favorite Italian dressing and add diced cucumbers and diced tomatoes. To make it more like a meal, add in diced grilled chicken or tofu.
