Wheeler Wheat uniquely uses Hard Red Spring Wheat (HRSW) rather than soft white or red wheats. It is the only malted Hard Red Spring Wheat available in Canada at this time.
Our land has a long legacy of growing HRSW. In 1911 Rosthern’s own Seager Wheeler won first prize for best North American Hard Spring Wheat taking home the prize of 1000 gold coins from the Canadian Pacific Railway. Between 1911-1918 five separate entries won World Wheat Competitions and Seager became known as the “Wheat King of the prairies”. HRSW is still known world-wide for its premium qualities and the Sask Valley grows some of the best HRSW in the world.
