Italian Organic Hulled Farro 12 oz



One of the grandfathers of the modern organic (or bio, as they call it) movement in Italy, Agribosco is a collective of dozens of tiny family farms in Umbria that are committed to keeping old-fashioned methods and crops alive. You can see the farmer’s hand in every bag – literally! Each bag is labeled with the name of the person who grew it. Carried back to Italy from Egypt by the Roman legion, farro has been a staple of the Italian diet for millennia. A rustic form of wheat, it requires a longer cooking time, but yields a chewy, never mushy grain with a deep nutty flavor. Slow-simmer it in a hearty fall soup or substitute it into a farrotto for a delicious twist on your everyday risotto.
