Red Fife Wheat (aka Scotch Fife) is a heritage grain thought to have originated in Turkey and then crossing several continents and the Atlantic before arriving in Canada. It is called "red" because of its color when fully ripe and "Fife" after David Fife, the Ontario farmer who was the first to grow it in North America when he sowed it on his farm in 1842. All of Treasure Life Flour Mill’s products are certified organic, and are grown and milled in Creston, BC!
