Also referred to as Emmer, Farro is one of the original ancient grains dating back to the fertile crescent. In ancient times, Farro was a staple in Egyptian diets and it continues to provide incredible nutritional benefits today.  Emmer is not particularly difficult to grow, but it does present challenges during and after harvest. The plant is tall and the kernels do not thresh clean like modern wheat. The harvested material must be de-hulled, which makes it challenging to prepare for human consumption.The completion of the process reveals the kernel of one of the most nutritious and intriguing grains in the modern world.
