Grain Farmers of Ontario is the province’s largest commodity organization, representing Ontario’s 28, barley, corn, oat, soybean and wheat farmers. The crops they grow cover 6 million acres of farm land across the province, generate over $ billion in farm gate receipts, result in over $18 billion in economic output and are responsible for o jobs in the province.

At great expense we now have an organic farm in Ontario, where we plant winter wheat and harvest it in the spring. We have about three weeks per year to do this. We chill it in 1 1/2 minutes to just above freezing and then it is packaged and frozen. Most of different forms of modern wheat are varieties of two broad groups, called common wheat and durum wheat. Common or bread wheat Triticum aestivum accounts for some 95 percent of all the consumed wheat in the world today; the other five percent is made up of durum or hard wheat T. turgidum ssp. durum, used in pasta and semolina products.
