Description

Hard Red Wheat, 45 lbs.

This conventional/non-organic hard red winter wheat is ideal for bread making. Breads made with hard red and hard white wheats will be very similar; the main difference is that red wheat produces a fuller, heartier flavor, and the bread will have a slightly darker color. Red wheat kernels are reddish-brown in color.

Our grain is triple-cleaned. It's also been tested, in the most meaningful way possible: By baking bread with it. You can depend on wheat from Pleasant Hill Grain to make bread and other baked goods that rise well, taste wonderful, and are packed with wholesome, natural nutrition! For those who may want to sprout some, our wheat is sproutable. Sprouting results may vary.

  • “I have been buying hard red wheat for years. When I bought this wheat I couldn't believe the difference in my bread. Bread raised well, excellent texture, and of course the nutty flavor. Perfect wheat.”

    – Pamela B., WI

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!

Convenient & safe storage: Our wheat comes in six-gallon buckets (or pails... another name for the same container). The net (contents) weight of the grain is 45 lbs. When you store grain 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, for example. And isn't this interesting: Chances are you've never seen weevils in the white bread or crackers you bought from the store. That's because weevils put no stock in media campaigns from white-flour milling conglomerates; rather, they know what's good for them, and they'd come after your grain from miles around if you let them. And mice have good nutritional judgment, too. Not that there's ever been a mouse in your house, but if there was... you wouldn't want it having access to your grain. Secondly, grain needs to be kept dry. The grain we sell is all dried to a very low moisture level that's optimal for storage and baking and guarantees that you get the most grain for your money. You need to protect your grain from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our grain comes in provide full protection against 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 grain 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.) Super Pail packaging is the "gold standard," the ultimate protection for your grain!

  • “Exactly as described, fast shipping, a quality product. It grinds well, good flavor, no complaints at all.”

    – Jeffrey T., CO

Super-cleaned: All of our grain is triple-cleaned (also called "triple washed") to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Grain 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). This applies equally to both the Organic and the Conventional (Non-Organic) grain.

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

  • Love this grain!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This is a grain that makes a full-flavored, easy to grind flour. It's full of protein & fiber, and makes a wonderful loaf of bread. I've made pastas and pastry dough too, and each one is great tasting & healthy.

  • HARD RED WINTER WHEAT
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have only used this once so far, but I was impressed first of all by the packaging, and then when I opened it, I can honestly say I have never seen such clean wheat. When I baked bread, my wheat bread was actually soft. Usually I only eat bread for sandwiches the day it was baked or the next, and then it is for toast, croutons or bread crumbs. This bread was still good for sandwiches 3-4 days later. You have a new customer! I am so glad I found you. Thanks so much.
