Red Fife has been making a comeback in the artisan baking community and is known for its complex taste, non-hybridization, and high gluten content. It is also known to be Canada's oldest wheat variety.
We have chosen Red Fife as our All-Purpose replacement flour because it is high in protein but slower gluten development therefore more resilient to overmixing and avoiding dense muffins, cakes and breads.
Our Organic Red Fife is grown by one of our incredible farmers Marc Loiselle in Vonda, SK. Marc’s farm is multi-generational and has been in operation for 115 years. He and his family are passionate organic farmers and take pride in the quality of their products.
Our top-quality grains are always traceable, organic and nothing is ever added.
