How much do you know about Wheat?

I think you’ll be surprised at how much you don’t know really. There is a neat program caled How Wheat Works that is a lot like a virtual version of “The Little Red Hen”. You get pick a type of wheat, then plant it, harvest it, mill it, and cook it! While you are working with your special wheat, you will learn some really interesting things about this food that we all eat.

I’m currently in the growing phase with my wheat on a journey to turning it into bagels. Already though I was amazed to learn that there are 6 different kinds of wheat. I thought wheat was wheat with no differences. I also found it interesting that it wasn’t farmed in the US until 1777.

I encourage you to go and participate in your own virtual Red Hen Story (can you tell I have 4 year olds) and learn more about this plant that is in many of the things you eat.

For each person who participates, the Wheat Foods Council is donating 2 lbs of wheat, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Home Front, a non-profit that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families.

For any home schoolers:

  • There are activity suggestions at the end of each phase that allow participants to extend their learning experience through preparing wheat-based recipes, exploring wheat grown in their area through the state wheat commission member sites and viewing harvest videos from “America’s Heartland.”
  • There are games, more resources and even quizes for Kids at www.wheatfoods.org. Click on Just for Kids.

      We just started milling our own wheat and making our own bread. It has been so amazing for our family and we already feel better. Now we make all our own bread, rolls, muffins, pancakes and even dog treats! Haven't tried bagels yet =)

      Hi Jenny and all: I am new to Southern Savers. I have about a $20 a week budget for groceries. Yes. A small budget. I noticed on your Buy Price, you have TP listed as FREE or $3.50 for 9-12 roll. I buy Scott 1,000 tissue bcs it lasts longer. I found it for $6.88 at Ingles this week but never FREE let alone $3.50. HELP, I am on a tight budget!

        You may wish to check on Walgreens, if I remember correctly their Big Roll toliet paper is a private-label version of SCOTT TP.

      I am new to southern savers and I have been thrilled with all of the great info! I mill my own wheat and home school, so this is a great site for us to learn about the entire process of wheat. Thank you so much for the time and energy you put into this site! My boys and I began phase one this morning!

    • Thanks for sharing! This is what I sent to my whole school system…

      We too mill our own wheat and make our own bread. It does save money but the health benefits and lack of additives are what caused us to make this big change in our family. We can't recommend it enough!
