This ancient whole grain is rich in protein, phosphorus, vitamin B6, potassium, antioxidants and amino acids. Its unique appearance — more similar to rice or orzo than modern wheats — reflects its ancient origin. Einkorn means “one-kernel’”, and refers to the way this ancient wheat grows, with one single grain per spikelet.

Einkorn has a higher percentage of protein than modern red wheats and has higher levels of fat, phosphorus, and potassium, making it more nutritious. It contains lower levels of gluten than modern wheats. and some people who are gluten sensitive may be able to consume Einkorn.

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!
