A note on the bundle boxes: We're now offering bundles of 4lb kernels in both 3- and 4-pack options, as well as a 50/50 Kernel Box with half Patwin, half Summit, shipped in USPS Flat Rate Boxes. Shipping cost is built into the price of the bundles ($14 for the 3 pack, $19 for the 4 pack). This is designed to address shipping costs for farther away locales. *Please note that items fit into the box exactly. Therefore, as much as we would like to, we are unable to add any more product to it.
Hard White Winter Wheat | Variety: Identity Preserved Patwin
Grown organically by Fritz Durst in Capay, CA
Patwin is an exceptional wheat variety developed by UC Davis that is particularly well-adapted to our region. Though this variety has slightly lower protein, the quality of the soil where it is grown gives it sturdy rising power and has excellent water absorption, making for beautiful, aromatic, loaves of bread. Bay Area artisanal bakers blend our Patwin and Summit flours for flavorful and nutritious 100% whole grain goods. Use whole kernels (also known as wheat "berries") for home milling flour or in soups and salads.
Protein: 9.5–10.5%. At Community Grains, we are learning that protein percentage does not equal protein functionality. It starts with the quality of the soil.
Identity Preserved takes Community Grains’ commitment to transparency to the next level. Our 23 Points of Identity tell the whole story. Enter the batch # (found on the back of your bag of kernels) on our site for detailed information about the wheat variety, and how it was grown and stored.
