Barley recipes, nutrition, research and commercial foods production. It's all here. This site is brought to you by the National Barley Foods Council. We're a non-profit organization established to serve as an educational clearinghouse for barley food, health and manufacturing issues. And we developed this site to serve as your one-stop information destination. So take a look around. You'll see there's lots to learn about this amazing grain.
It's the season of gift-giving. If you're looking for ways to simplify your celebrations, we've got a charming and inexpensive gift idea for the foodies and cooks on your list. Fill a vintage mason jar (or other neat tag sale find) with raw pearl barley. Decorate the lid with a small ornament and attach a recipe card with a festive ribbon. Check out our Barley Recipes for some yummy ideas.
