Durum Wheat, 42 lbs.

These non-GMO conventional (not organic) durum wheat berries are triple-cleaned and perfect for making pasta!

This pasta wheat is not a good choice for making bread. Some good bread-making choices are the hard red or hard white wheat berries, as well as spelt, kamut or rye or Einkorn. We also offer soft white wheat berries that produce baked goods with a tender crumb—just what you want for making muffins, biscuits, pancakes and pastries.

Convenient & safe storage: Our durum wheat comes in six-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container), containing 42 lbs. net weight. When you store durum wheat at home, it needs to be protected in a couple of ways. First, it needs to be protected from a variety of little critters who'd like to get to it before you do. Weevils and rodents, for example. You also need to protect your durum wheat from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our durum wheat comes in provide full protection against these storage risks. They have airtight gasket-sealed lids, Mylar liners, and oxygen absorber packets that remove the oxygen from the air in the bucket after we put the lid on. The O2 absorbers leave an atmosphere of nitrogen in the bucket, because air consists almost entirely of oxygen and nitrogen. (The oxygen absorber packets themselves are completely food-safe, being made of powdered iron and salt, which are kept separate from the product itself.) Our buckets safely lock out pests, and biological processes are put "on hold" in the Mylar protected, oxygen-free nitrogen atmosphere, so your durum wheat enjoys complete peace and quiet until you want to use it. Note: If you don't already have a bucket lid removal tool, they make lid removal easy (see lower section of this Web page.)

  • “Very clean grain. As always, perfection in packaging and shipping. I've been a customer for years and will continue to be. I have a flour mill from Pleasant Hill and the durum is our staple flour. The dent corn is awesome as well and the two make the world's best cornbread.”

    – Donna E., OH

Beat oxidation! In whole-grain foods, the plant's cellular walls protect nutrients from oxidation. The process of oxidation begins to occur as soon as grain is ground, exposing the cell's contents to oxygen in the air. Flour that is several days (or more) old, has been exposed to oxygen that inevitably diminishes its nutritional value. The way to get full nutrition from whole grain foods is to mill them when you need them, right in your kitchen. Modern high-speed grain mills make it fast and easy to enjoy the freshest, best tasting and most nutritious food imaginable!

Super-cleaned: All of our durum wheat is triple-cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Durum wheat that isn't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!)

Non-GMO: All of Pleasant Hill Grain's whole grain products are natural (non-GMO). 

Pleasant Hill Grain offers over thirty kinds of whole grain products. You can also grow your own grains, fruits and vegetables with our heirloom garden seed & sprouting seed collections!

Our foods category offers many selections of baking ingredients, delicious dried fruits and vegetables, long-term storable foods, canned meat, fish and poultry, sweeteners and more.

As a whole grains shopper you may also be interested in hand crank and electric grain mills and grain flakers as well as heavy duty Bosch mixers, Ankarsrum (formerly Electrolux) mixers, and Häussler spiral dough mixers!

Exceptional Value of Bulk Grain

It's well known that basic natural foods tend to be lower in cost and much higher in nutrition than processed commercial choices, but we were still a little shocked when we compared the cost of a staple like whole grain wheat, to items on the shelves at a local grocery store. Our grain comes packaged 45 lbs. to a bucket, so we're reporting each cost here, for that same net weight. The cost of living index in Nebraska is comparatively low, so processed foods like the examples shown here are priced even higher in most areas. We came away from this exercise with a heightened appreciation for the low cost and exceptional value of quality basic foods like whole grain wheat!
45 lbs. of Wheaties™ cereal $248
45 lbs. of Capt'n Crunch™ cereal $219
45 lbs. of Nacho Cheese Doritos™ $259
45 lbs. of Maxwell House™ coffee $193
45 lbs. of 9 Lives™ (the cat food!) $98

    I grind my own flour now and finding organic durum wheat was really hard. Most places you pay more for shipping than for the grain. Well, I bought the biggest canister and it lasted me for almost a year and made amazing pizza and pasta. My neighbor went with a cheaper alternative but we had to pick out a lot of stuff before she could grind it. The triple cleaning is really worth it to insure your investment in your flour mill. They're so expensive why chance a few rocks destroying it with a lesser brand?

    I have a grain mill also from Pleasant Hill and make all my own flour. The Durum is a staple for us. The product is clean and so well packaged. It's my all purpose flour. Shipping is fair and fast with unmatched customer service.
