Purple Valley Naked Barley
Purple Valley is a spring planted dry-farmed 6-row purple barley which likely has it's origins in the Himalayas. The organic seed came from Lonesome Whistle farm down in Junction City. It was grown on a small certified organic plot in collaboration with the OSU Barley Project after they received a grant to focus on organic naked barley varieties. Naked barley does not require any processing or "pearling" after harvest to remove hulls so it retains it's bran and germ and thus is still a whole grain with greater nutritional value.
