At Tamarack Farms, we first became interested in growing quinoa on our farm because of our strong interest in local food and our connection to Peru – Alexandra is originally from Lima, Peru where Ryan and Alexandra met in 2004. We initially tried growing quinoa on our farm in 2009, but only harvested our first crop in 2014. For the last two years, we have grown 20 acres of a “nutty brown” quinoa. When cooked, our quinoa has an “al dente” texture, nutty flavour, and darker colour much like brown rice. Its texture and flavour distinguish it from the common white and red varieties.
