Amagansett Wheat Project
Amber Waves Farm launched the Amagansett Wheat Project in 2009 to reintroduce wheat and other small grains to the Hamptons. In three successful growing seasons we have harvested over 10,000 lbs of organic grains from our Amagansett fields.
This fall we planted six acres of wheat in our Amagansett and East Hampton fields. We planted several varieties each with its own culinary specialty: hard red wheat used for wheat berries and bread flour, and soft white and red wheats used for pastry flour. We look forward to our fourth wheat harvest in July, when we expect to bring in over five tons of wheat.
We sell our organic wheat berries and whole wheat stone ground flour at the farm and at the Montauk Farmers Market (Thursdays 9am-1pm June-October) and the Springs Farmers Market (Saturdays 9-1 May-October). Be sure to look for Amber to look for Amber Waves wheat berries on restaurant menus throughout the Hamptons!
