This 100% extraction whole-kernel flour is made from Black Emmer, a rare ancient grain, also known as Farro Nero. The word “farro” comes from pharaoh, as this grain was originally grown in ancient Egypt. When the Roman Empire expanded there, they brought this grain back to the continent, and it became known as farro nero the “black grain of the Pharaohs.”

We have found Black Emmer to be an extremely versatile flour. Everything we’ve made with it has been super-flavorful, including pancakes, zucchini bread, and sourdough bread. At 11% protein, you can substitute it for All-Purpose in your favorite cookie or quick bread recipe, and bake something truly extraordinary — delicious and highly nutritious!

Made by Janie's Mill

The idea for Janie’s Mill sprung up one day as Harold was watching tons of his organic wheat flow into a semi to travel far from Janie’s Farm.

He suddenly thought, "Really?! My grain has to go 700 miles to feed a chicken, when there’s all these millions of people nearby who eat bread?”

And so the seed of what would become Janie’s Mill was planted. It took years of research and planning before we began stone-grinding grains from Janie’s Farm in the spring of 2017. We worked with bakers to get their input and feedback and by fall, we were milling consistent, high quality flours that earned kudos from both home and professional bakers. We’ve been milling those flours, and adding more to meet bakers’ specific needs ever since, and can’t wait for you to use our flours, grits, and whole grains in your kitchen or bakery!
