Removing stones & dirt from wheatberries

January 5, 2013 - 7:00am -- SheriW

I'm sorry if this has been covered already (and if so please just post the link to the subject), but I fail at searching. We grow our own wheat, and I find it very tedious to hand "rummage" through the wheat berries to cull out the stones and dirt. Is there something clever, without using water or buying another piece of expensive equipment, that I can do to make this job a little easier?

Thank you!

Found Wheat Montana white wheat berries at Walmart

August 23, 2010 - 3:21pm -- boilerbaker

I was surprised to find 25 lb of Wheat Montana Prairie Gold Wheat, (hard white spring wheat) at Walmart today for sale for $12.68.  I also was able to buy King Arthur all purpose flour, which our Walmart sometimes has had in the past, but not usually.  We live in Evansville, IN, so I was really excited to see both of these products at a more affordable price.  Before I've had to order rye berries and wheat berries through Great Harvest Bread Co, and had to purchase about 50 lb, so I am happy to have the 25 lb package.
