One of the first grains discovered, farro is the ancestor of modern wheat. It is said to have sustained the Roman legions as they conquered Europe.Farro is a cereal grain in which, unlike wheat, the husk adheres to the grain, just as in barley and oats. Its fiber content therefore is high and so are nutrients such as Vitamin E and protein. When combined with legumes, as in many Tuscan recipes, farro forms a complete protein source.

Rustichella d'Abruzzo collaborates with a group of local farmers to cultivate an indigenous variety of farro, known as farro vestino, grown in the Vestini hills of Abruzzo. Rustichella's Farro Couscous is made with 100% stone ground whole farro and pure Apennine mountain spring water.

Farro has seen a surge in popularity thanks to its excellent taste and adaptability. Now in couscous form, the nutty flavor and delightful chewy texture enhances a range of dishes from meat ragu to seafood stew, or even eaten simply drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Because it is easily digested and low in gluten, farro can often be eaten by people who are normally gluten-intolerant.

Each bag of Rustichella d'Abruzzo Farro Couscous weighs approximately 1.1 lb. and is imported from Italy.
