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).
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.
Farro is rich in fiber, iron, magnesium, and vitamin B, and is almost always grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers. Because it is so easily digested and low in gluten, farro can often be eaten by people who are normally gluten-intolerant.
Our organic farro is the true version of farro - Triticum dicoccum.
Farro usually needs to be soaked overnight before cooking. Try adding it to your soups, salads, or even making a special twist on risotto!
To cook, soak in water overnight. Heat 3 parts liquid to one part farro for approximately 30 minutes for a chewy texture or up to 60 minutes for a mushy texture.
Our Registered Dietitian's Top PickOur 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.

“Just as I expected, I LOVE the dried strawberries. They taste like summer. I used the Farro in a salad recipe today and was very pleased with the result. My sense is that farro is a high soluble fiber grain.”
