Oat berries also provide high nutritional value and offer increased antioxidant benefits.
Raw organic Oat groats are becoming popular in many dishes because they provide a chewier nutty texture. Because they are harder to chew the preferred method is to soak for 30-45 minutes before cooking. Others are using unique cooking methods including olive oil and even pressure cookers to use oat groats in a variety of recipes.
If you are trying to escape processed cereals but getting tired of oatmeal, you will have to try a bowl of oat groats. Many have made this their number one choice for breakfast.
Oat groats make a wonderful replacement for rice, oatmeal, or other grains commonly used in all three meals during the day including breakfast cereals, soups, and even salad toppings.
Oat groats also provide high nutritional value and offer increased antioxidant benefits.

About Stutzman Organic Farms
Cottage Craft Works is proud to provide such a high-quality supply of bulk organic foods. These foods are processed on an Amish family-run farm that has been growing all organic for over six decades.
If you are looking for high-quality certified organically grown grains to mill yourself or to purchase milled flours, then you have found the place to purchase them in bulk.
Stutzman Family Farms has grown organic grains in the Ohio rolling hills of Holmes County for over 60 years. Long before organic certification ever existed the Stutzman family has practiced organic soil management to obtain rich fertile soil and high-quality grains throughout their Amish heritage.
Stutzman Farms is organically certified through the Ohio Ecological Food & Farm Association (OEFFA). The Stutzman family processes a variety of natural organic grains.
Food processing from the organic grains is completed on the Stutzman Farms. These facilities are routinely inspected by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
All grains and grain products processed on the Stutzman Farms are organically grown.
Stutzman Farms specializes in growing and harvesting Spelt, Wheat, Oats, Rye, and Corn on Ohio Amish Farms using the old-time planting and harvesting methods.
Grains such as Amaranth, Barley, Long Grain Brown Rice, Buckwheat, and Golden Flax Seed may not adapt well to the Ohio climate. In this case, these grains may be grown in limited supply or supplemented by other organic growers from across the United States.
These organic growers may consist of other Amish organic farmers as well as Non-Amish traditional organic farmers.
Grains are stored and processed right on the farm. Each order is hand filled right from the farm storage facilities.
In addition to providing organically grown grains, organic breakfast cereals and mixes are made on site. An old-fashioned Puffer makes the natural puffed cereals, which have become hard to find in local stores. Stoneground flours, homemade Granolas, Spelt Crackers, and healthy bars are a Stutzman specialty.
Despite their Amish back-to-basics heritage, the Stutzman family keeps up with the modern needs of health consciences eaters. They now offer sprouted grain products and keep improving their processing and machinery to provide the highest quality products available in any health food store.
Orders are still processed in the old fashion way and shipped directly from the Amish farm in Ohio. Please allow a few extra days for your order to arrive.
Because the Amish farm is not computerized, we do not have electronic tracking to automatically update your order status from processing to shipping. Orders are hand-carried via a fax service and then shipped using the old-style UPS book. Manual tracking numbers are kept at the farm should we ever need to trace a package.
Our Amish grain products are very popular with many repeat customers.
Please note our limit on shipping: Our checkout module combines shipping costs for multiple products. While this works great for most of our other products including up to two 25lb. bags (50lbs.) of grain items that can ship in one box UPS, unfortunately, when we receive an order for 75lbs of grain products the shipping module does not at all take into account the cost of a third box having to be shipped separately.
For this reason, to keep our overall prices low for now, we have to limit 50 lbs. two each 25 lb. bags per order. We are sorry for this inconvenience as we have researched all other alternatives and will continue to do so.
While eating whole grains and grain products are generally recommended by healthcare professionals for all the known health and nutrition benefits, some people may develop adverse reactions leading to serious and life-threatening allergic reactions or complications within the digestive system or bowel tract.
People who are new to whole grains or a specific new grain product should complete their own research to learn more about how it is digested, the health benefits, and risks in order to make an informed purchasing decision.
Even then new grains and products should be used in small amounts until the person can see how they will tolerate the product.
People with an already known digestive tract and bowel complications should consult a physician before embarking on a new whole grain enriched diet. Some of the products made from whole grains are water-insoluble and may bulk up and block an already partially obstructed bowel.
