We source our poppy seeds from small farms around the city of Afyonkarahisar in central Turkey. The city is so integral to the history of poppy cultivation that the name of the city translates literally to “Poppy Black Fortress.” Poppies have been cultivated there for millennia for culinary, medicinal and recreational applications.

The seeds were super fresh, tasty and beautiful.
These poppy seeds have been the best, by far.
Last time I baked—Banana Buckwheat Sourdough—this week I used up my old (not unfresh or anything) Whole Foods poppy seeds side by side with the B+B ones...It’s like the difference between drinking orange juice from concentrate vs. squeezing the juice out of an orange. These are the (flavor) bomb!
Definitely deliciously delightful. Made loaves of no knead bread. The Blue Poppyseeds gave it the visual appeal to put it over the top.
I have been using burlap & barrels spices for a year now. Couldn’t find fresher spices anywhere in the states! My food suddenly looks and tastes vibrant!
