About Wheat

Currently our wheat collection is grouped according to planting times. Fall planted varieties are Winter Wheat and as the name implies Spring Wheat is planted in the spring. Some varieties are facultative, sown in fall or spring; we distinguish which season they are sown in their descriptions. 

Our focus is on varieties that are no longer grown commercially that have ties to the Great Lakes region. This collection of wheat (and other grain) cultivars is being expanded.

Big Sky FarmHer has a very nice write up about different kinds of wheat and their traditional uses. She sources information from the US Wheat Associates which provides this informative map of the commercially available classes throughout the US in 2020 which is an interesting comparison to the 1900 distribution map created by the USDA.
