Our hard red wheat is known in some circles as the best wheat to have on hand.  It has a low moisture content and a high protein content (14% or more) making it the best wheat to make bread with and other baked goods.  Hard red wheat is great to eat as a nice hot cereal for the mornings.  Just put it in your crock pot at night and a nice healthy cereal full of protein will be waiting for you the following morning.  This is a great wheat to grind down into flour and use in your baking goods.  It is also good for sprouting if you like to eat sprouts.  This is a must have for your long term food storage needs! Similar to canned wheat berries but in a bucket.

You’ve probably seen hard wheat in a list of things to get for long-term food storage. Most people typically use flour but don’t directly use hard white wheat berries on a regular basis in the kitchen. But whole ground flour does not store very long without going rancid, but the best way to make sure you will have wheat flour available to you when famines hit the US, because of drought or bad weather that ruins grain crops, is to have your own supply of whole grains. You can grind these grains to make the flour you need to make your own quick bread and yeast bread. When you are looking for a 5 gallon bucket of wheat to use as vegan prepper food, you will want to get yourself a good quality stone grain mill that you can use primarily as a hand crank mill but also with a battery powered drill so you can more quickly and easily grind grain while you have the option of using power.


1 loaf of whole wheat bread uses 4.5 cups of flour which weights 1.5 lb. So you can make 24 loaves of bread with this 36 lb bucket of wheat berries.


1.5 cups water
1 tablespoon molasses 
1 tsp salt
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed 
1 tablespoon or 1/16 cup oil
4.5 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon yeast 
Knead bread until stretchy texture. Let rest in covered bowl until size doubles. Knead again for 30 sec. Divide into equal parts and shape into loaves. Place in bread pans. Set timer for 15 min. Then heat oven to 425 deg F. When the oven is up to temp, check if loaves are raised to a good size. If they are, place in oven and bake for 15 min. Then reduce heat to 350 deg F and bake for 30 min.
