Red Fife and/or Einkorn Wheat berries

Does anyone know where I can get either of these? I don't want the flour but the wheat berries as I have my own grinder. I can only ever find the flour.

  1. Your best bet would be to contact one of the Red Fife growers in Ontario. Sean McGivern of Saugeen Specialty Grains and Patricia Hastings of CIPM would be a couple of farmers to start with.

    1. I bought a bag of Red Fife flour just yesterday at Fresh From the Farm on Donlands (I love this store). They had a couple of bags left. I could be wrong, but I thought I saw wheat berries there as well. Also, the Saturday market at the Brick Works had a guy there who sold Red Fife flour, last summer.

        Thanks, yeah they always seem to have the flour but not the wheatberries. The vendors who sell at the markets probably grind their own flour so I will ask them if they can bring wheatberries for me next time, as well as check the two vendors Tatai mentioned.

      2. Hi Flexitarian, I just came upon this thread because I'm looking to buy einkorn flour and/or grains. Can you tell me where you can find the flour? And have you had any luck finding einkorn grains in Toronto? Thanks!
