Farro is an ancient relative of modern-day wheat. It was a mainstay of the daily diet in ancient Rome, and is still popular in Italy today. Farro is hearty and chewy, with a rich, nutty flavor. Use in stews, casseroles, salads and pilafs.

Details

Take a culinary voyage to the Mediterranean with farro, a hearty grain that was a mainstay of the daily diet in ancient Rome. Some say farro is the original ancestor of all other wheat species—“the mother of all wheat.” In ancient Rome, farro was a staple food that provided the main source of nourishment for the Roman legions, and it was even used as a form of currency. Today this Old World heirloom grain is still highly regarded in Italy, where it has been grown for generations by Tuscan farmers and is featured in many traditional dishes.


Our organic farro, Triticum spelta, offers many health benefits including being a good source of iron. Farro is easy to digest, allowing your body to readily absorb the nutrients. Our farro is very lightly scratched, as is traditional, to allow for a faster cooking time and to encourage the release of its starches during cooking, but it maintains all of the nutritional benefits of farro.

A darling grain of foodies and chefs, farro can widen your culinary horizons by using it in stews, casseroles and salads. Buy Farro online today and use it as a substitute for brown rice and wheat berries. Try your hand at “farrotto,” an alternative to traditional risottos. Farro is easy to prepare, but exotic enough to impress your friends and family. Browse our recipe selection for inspiring ways to bring this mainstay of Italy to your table.

For all meals
The Farro is excellent for breakfast and for salads. I also use it in stews to add a bit of texture. Great flavor and takes seasoning well. Highly recommend Farro as the "grain of choice" in just about any application.

Really good as Porridge as well as pilaf
Other day I was going to cook farro to stuff squash. I didn’t read the instructions, added too much water and ended up with porridge. This will not be the only time I do that. The Porridge seemed naturally sweet and very filling. I highly recommend this product for breakfast.

Better than brown rice!
I love the great flavor, and the nutrition of this Farro over brown rice. It cooks easily, when you follow the directions on the bag. I love to add it to cooked Brussels Sprouts, and baked sweet potato chunks, with tahini sauce. I can always count on the quality of Bobs products. Never disappointed !

Halal Street-cart style chicken goes next level with this stuff!
We use this instead of rice in our Halal street-cart style chicken, and it is amazing! My mother in law, who says she has trouble with gluten, asked me what it was and where I got it. She's one of the least adventurous cooks ever, so it was nice to introduce her to this chewy, hearty grain.

Farro is a great substitute for rice or other grains. I love its chewy, robust texture and high protein content. It can be turned into a risotto-like one pot dinner in 30 minutes, which is great for busy evenings when you still want to eat healthy.

Do you have also hulled Farro? I know that this one is pearled, but a hulled whole grain version would be appreciated :)
Francesco B on Jan 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We don't at this time, but we appreciate the feedback and will take it into consideration.
Is your farro pre-steamed?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, our farro is not pre-steamed. It has been lightly scratched to allow the grain to pop open during cooking and release its starches, but it has not been cooked in any form.
Is your farro semi-pearled?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This product is pearled. Our farro is very lightly scratched, as is traditional, to allow for a faster cooking time and to encourage the release of its starches during cooking, but it maintains its wholesome nutrients.
Is your farro whole grain ?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi! No, this product is not whole grain. The light scratching of the grain removes a small portion of the bran.
Can I soak it 48 hours room temp?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, when soaked the grain will become plump and soft. Follow Pre-Soak Method directions on back of package; your cook time will be reduced to 10 minutes or less.
If this is triticum spelta (which I know it's actually spelt), then what is the difference between this and spelt (that you guys sell too)?
Virgil R on Feb 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, both our Farro and Spelt Berries are triticum spelta. The difference is in preparation - Our Farro is very lightly scratched, as is traditional, to allow for a faster cooking time and to encourage the release of its starches during cooking. Spelt Berries, on the other hand, are whole grain with the bran, germ, and endosperm all fully intact.
Was this processed on the same equipment as nuts? If so which nuts? Thanks.
A shopper on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Farro is processed on shared lines with almonds and walnuts. Despite a thorough cleaning process, there is a possibility for cross contact.
Why can’t I purchase farro seed in smaller amount?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our smallest package is a 24oz bag.
Can this be sprouted, dried, and then ground into flour?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, this can not be sprouted. It is a pearled product.
Is this the medium grade?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: .I would need more information about what you mean by medium grade. Farro is not differentiated by grade but can be different from brand to brand. Our Farro is made from scored Spelt.

Quality. Integrity. Tradition.
