Organic, Local Barley Berries

Organic, Local Barley Berries

Unit price per
Regular price

Barley berries are the hulled seeds of the barley plant. Like other grains that retain bran, endosperm, and germ - barley berries are considered to be a whole grain – they're highly nutritious and also high in fiber! Barley berries have a rich nut-like flavor.

Cooking barley berries is very simple. For every 1 cup of barley berries, use 3 cups of water or broth. Cook on the stove for about 45 minutes.

We love cooking up a batch of barley berries to toss into salads, often a kale base with a very garlicky dressing.

Next Step Produce is a certified organic farm in Maryland that is “Committed to Growing Nourishing Food in Harmony with Nature" through soil-building, nutrient-density, and a diverse plant-based farming system. We met farmers Heinz, Gabrielle, and their daughters in the early days of Number 1 Sons.

They are quite the pioneers in the Mid-Atlantic farming community. Their greenhouse and grain-drying process is powered by a high-efficiency wood-burning furnace, with wood sourced by selective low-grading right from their property. They have specialized equipment from Japan so they can grow and process rice, grains and beans - things that normally aren't grown in our region!  You may have eaten their foods at Seylou Bakery or A Rake's Progress :)
