Amish Sprouted Whole Spelt Flour 25 lb
Amish Sprouted Whole Spelt Flour is stone-ground on an Amish organic certified farm in Ohio.
We sell organic sprouted Spelt flour in 25 lb bags.
Several different varieties of spelt are grown in the US and not all provide the same level of benefits. Some varieties have more protein and less wheat germ contributing to gluten. The older varieties more closely parallel the ancient grains without needing human modifications to increase tolerances and yields for different regions.

The Amish farms use the Oberkulmer variety of spelt. Obekulmer is one of the older cultivars containing pure spelt cultivar with no wheat germ. It has a very high grain protein making it ideal for making bread, an Amish specialty. In fact, the Ohio Seed Improvement Association who works closely with Amish framers ranks Oberkulmer grain protein at a half percent higher than other varieties. Oberkulmer also produces higher robust yields without modifications making it ideal for smaller Amish farms.
Oberkulmer was imported from Switzerland and has been followed and tested by the Ohio Seed Improvement Association since 1989.
Note: Spelt grains are processed in the same Amish mill as wheat grains so we do not claim that it will be totally gluten-free.
Whole Sprouted Spelt Flour is stone-ground and packaged fresh for shipping. This spelt includes the germ and will be tan in color (Golden)
Please limit orders to 50 lbs per order. UPS does not calculate additional boxes needed to ship more than 50 lbs.
Grain products ship fresh directly off an Amish farm that does not provide electronic tracking numbers. Tracking numbers are manually available if needed. Please allow 7-10 days shipping.
In addition to the many benefits of Spelt, the sprouted version reportedly provides richer food enzymes, natural vitamins and provides better absorption.
Sprouted spelt contains higher levels of niacin, nearly double the amount of vitamin B6 with more protein and less starch than unspotted wheat grains.
The actual sprouting begins with soaking the grain just until the sprout begins to break through the outer shell. At this point, they are either rolled wet or then dried or dried whole ready to grind.
Drying is completed in a dehydrator set to below 110 degrees until the moisture content reaches storage levels.
People with a lower glycemic index with blood sugar issues may benefit from the sprouted version.
About Stutzman 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're 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.
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 ship. Orders are 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 50 lb limit on shipping: UPS, unfortunately, does not calculate the second box when orders exceed 50 lbs.
For this reason and in order 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 consuming 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.
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.
