Grains are harvested in June-July and the flour is available in 1kg and 5kg bags.
The choice of organic and farm grown grains determines the strength of the flour, which varies between W 180-W 250. For maximum texture and softness, it is useful to have a moisture content of up to 60-65% and a leavening time from between 10-12 hours. It is recommended to let the dough rest for 40-60 minutes in order to allow the moisture to become evenly distributed throughout the various components of the flour. A starter yeasts aids both the kneading and leavening phases, as well as enhances the organoleptic characteristics of the flour.
A small production of artisanal durum wheat semolina pasta that is stone milled from our organically grown ancient grains. The "full-body" of the grain is milled, with care taken to leave the natural proportions of bran and middlings unaltered and to preserve the wheat germ in the whole wheat semolina.
