This heritage grain was brought from Scotland to Canada a little over 170 years ago and is said to be Canada’s oldest wheat.
Up until the end of the 19th century Red Fife was the dominant hard wheat planted across the prairies. Fast forward to today and Red Fife is making a resurgence thanks to its nutritional value and flavour. With subtle notes of stone fruit and pecan, the butter smooth body of Red Fife will make your muffins and breads pop.
Use it interchangeably with 1847's "Daily Grind" all purpose flour or play around with mixtures in your recipes. The Red Fife berries are seasonally sourced from farmers across Canada to provide a protein content comparable to that of an all-purpose flour.
