Hulless Barley

Our Products: Heritage Grains > Hulless Barley
A rare old grain that originated on the Tibetan plateau around 4000 B.C. This seed was brought to the U.S. from Afghanistan by a serviceman and grown out by a seedsman in North Dakota. With an extensive genetic diversity that allows adaptation to harsh environments, this grain has long been a staple food for the peoples of that area. Hulless barley has a loose husk that comes off easily when threshed, unlike modern barley, which requires ‘pearling’ or abrasive removal of the husk including the germ and bran.Organic.
