One of our wheat products we carry is Turkey Red Wheat. This wheat is heritage wheat that makes fantastic bread. "This particular variety can be traced to Crimea between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov in the early 19th century and earlier to Turkey to the south of the Black Sea. Mennonite immigrants brought it to the United States in the early 1870's, introducing it to the areas surrounding Marian, Reno and Harvey Counties in Kansas. It became the dominant hard red winter wheat in Kansas and much of the Great Plains bread basket and was the major hard winter variety in the 1920's. Significant acreage was planted in Kansas until the mid-1940's Not only does this variety have a great root structure and is great for the soil, in a recent drought it outperformed other modern varieties. The wheat has excellent flavor, good protein quantity and quality, and has proven longevity and resilience. And Makes wonderful flour for baking with its rich flavors. We also carry other food grade wheat varieties at our facility. Organic hard red spring or winter wheat has a protein content of 10% or better. These berries can be cooked as a cereal, sprouted for salads or milled into flour with grinders.

Grain sorghum is a whole grain available in bagged and bulk forms for food grade grain. In the United States, sorghum is grown primarily in areas stretching from South Dakota to Texas. It is a resilient crop that is able to grow in arid lands and marginal conditions, including Africa, where it is an important crop. Grain sorghum is versatile as both a food and animal feed grain; when ordering, the food grade variety appropriate for most food-aid applications is white sorghum. Additionally, sorghum is conventionally bred and not genetically modified so it may be used in countries with such a requirement. White Sorghum is a good source of complex carbohydrates, fiber, iron and B vitamins. A good source of plant-based protein, it forms a complete protein meal when combined with pulses. Sorghum grain is gluten-free and US-grown sorghum grain does not contain tannins; its digestibility is dependent on its processing method. To prepare, the whole grain may be soaked overnight, then cooked. It may be added to two parts water, brought to a boil and simmered for 40-45 minutes. Boiling water may be added to ground sorghum to produce a thick porridge-like meal, or the ground flour may be used like wheat to make unleavened breads, cookies, tortillas and other baked goods. It can also be popped like a popcorn for a hearty, nutty-tasting snack.
Our popcorn is grown locally and tested for quality. Here are some interesting facts about popcorn.
Did you ever wonder why we love reaching for handfuls of fluffy, buttery popcorn at the cinema? Before it became a movie theater concession, popcorn was typically sold at circuses and carnivals, or by street vendors pushing around popcorn carts. In the late nineteenth century, these street vendors stationed themselves around movie theaters, which attracted large crowds of people that would buy the popcorn to enjoy during their show. Theater owners soon realized the opportunity and began stocking their concession stands with the snack.
At five cents a bag, popcorn's popularity continued to grow, even thru the Great Depression of the 1930's. Popcorn was beloved as a tasty snack that was fun and filling. During the sugar shortage of World War II, Americans ate less candy and turned to popcorn to fulfill their snacking needs. The popularity of home televisions and introduction of microwaves in the decades to follow only bolstered popcorn's status as America's favorite movie-time treat.
