Farro (emmer) is an ancient type of wheat (scientific name is Triticum Dicoccum). Farro is excellent for salads, soups, stews or as an original alternative to risotto. It is rich in protein, minerals, fibers and vitamins – and therefore ideal for a healthy and balanced diet. This farro is semi-pearled, which means part of the bran is removed, but still contains some fiber. Cascina Oschiena is one of only five farms in Italy to grow classic rice varieties; they grow rice sustainably with care and precision in the province of Vercelli, and much of their land is a designated nature preserve.
