How to Get Wheat Starts
To get Wheat—leading to Flour and Whole-Wheat Flour—you’ll need to get some Wheat Starts. Wheat Starts will allow you to grow your own Wheat. You can buy these Wheat Starts from Leif, the Gardener who sells various Plants and Seeds, for 280 Bells each. However, you’ll need to wait for Leif to have Wheat Starts in stock.
Leif will visit your island randomly every two weeks, and he will be available to purchase from between 5AM and 10PM. Alternatively, you can unlock Harv’s Island Plaza and purchase from Leif there.
How to Unlock and Use Harv’s Island Plaza
Harv’s Island which has the Photo Studio on it will unlock as soon as you have three villagers living on your island. He’ll then call and ask you to fly to his island. After you’ve done so and checked out his Photo Studio, you will receive a letter from Harv asking you to visit again. When you return to his island, walk straight past the Studio and into the Island Plaza. Speak with Harv and Harriet about their commune.
After this, you can bring various vendors to the Plaza for 100,000 Bells each. Find the Lloid that is taking donations for a plant vendor. Donate the 100,000 Bells, wait until it’s built, and Leif will always be at this location henceforth.
How to Make Flour and Whole-Wheat Flour
Once you’ve obtained your Wheat Starts and grown some Wheat, you’re almost ready to turn it into Flour and Whole-Wheat Flour. However, to do so, you’ll need to have a Stonework Kitchen.
How to Make a Kitchen
To Build a Stonework Kitchen, you’ll need to first unlock its DIY recipe by purchasing the DIY Recipes+ at the Nook Shop for 2,000 Nook Miles. Once you’ve done this, you’ll need the following items to craft the Stonework Kitchen:
- 30 Stone
- 15 Clay
- 10 Iron Nuggets
Once your Kitchen is built, simply visit it and use 5 Wheat to craft Flour. Crafting Whole-Wheat Flour may take one extra step.
How to Unlock Whole-Wheat Flour Recipe
While Flour will be available to make immediately after building the Stonework Kitchen, you may need to take an extra step to make Whole-Wheat Flour. Go to Nook’s Cranny and purchase the Basic Cooking Recipes for 4,980 Bells, if you don’t have this yet. Once you do this, Whole-Wheat Flour will be available to make in your Stonework Kitchen.
