Story

Freekeh is green roasted wheat which is processed by farmers in the field. It's produced by harvesting the wheat early when it's still green. Afterwards it's roasted in open fires in the field, cleaned from the husk, dried and then crushed. The wheat for the freekeh comes from small farmers in the Jenin area who depend solely on farming to make a living.
