Einkorn is one of the most ancient foods in the world. It is a type of wheat, which has fed many nations for centuries. It has been forgotten due to the poor harvests provided by the slow processing process.

Einkorn grows in our lands and preserves the traditions of the ancients. This unique plant is unpretentious to grow - it grows equally well at all temperatures. This is an indisputable advantage. In addition, it does not tolerate soil fertilization, so it is free of pesticides and chemicals. This makes it a popular food in healthy eating.
