Red Fife Wheat

104 Lang Road, ,

From 1860 - 1900, Red Fife wheat was 'spring wheat' in Canada. After falling out of favour with commercial growers and all but disappearing in the late 1900s, this high quality milling and baking wheat is enjoying a renaissance with farmers, bakers, and consumers. Renowned for its flavour, this hearty grain was developed by David Alexander Fife and his wife, Jane, in 1842 on the original family farm just a stone’s throw from here. The family’s homestead is maintained within Lang Pioneer Village.
