So you can pick try their real food cookies (remember: their eggs come from pasture-raised hens), buy a case of organic tomatoes in glass jars or even some Einkorn flour or Einkorn wheat berries to grind at home to make your own breads, cookies and biscuits from this ancient grain.

New to Einkorn?
Einkorn is an ancient grain – and the first wheat cultivated by early neolithic man; however, there’s some evidence that epipaleolithic man also consumed Einkorn. It is a non-hybridized original wheat with just 14 chromosomes (compared to 42 for modern wheat). Containing a gluten molecule that is functionally different from modern wheat, many people can tolerate Einkorn where they cannot tolerate modern wheats or spelt.
Einkorn can be used at a 1:1 ratio for regular flour in basic recipes for breads, cakes and cookies.
