Washington State Couple Cultivates Ancient Variety Of Wheat

August 15, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Whether or not they represent the vanguard of a foodie trend is impossible to say, but a couple in central Washington State is devoted to raising and selling an ancient variety of wheat known as emmer. And the products of Bluebird Grain Farms have found a market among regional chefs who used to import emmer from Italy. The couple not only cultivates emmer, they store and mill the grain to make sure of its integrity from “plow to plate”. Sam and Brooke Lucy sell to chefs, but also peddle finished emmer-based baked products online: cereal, pancake and waffle mixes, and flour for baking cookies, muffins, breads and wide-noodle pasta.
