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. If by experience, I know the variety is facultative, sown in fall or spring, I list it in both collections.Those seed lines will be kept separate by how we planted them. 

Our focus is on varieties that are no longer grown commercially that have ties to the Great Lakes region. This collection of wheat (and barley) seeds 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 interesting map of the commercially available classes throughout the US:
