Author Notes: Being a huge lover of farro, on a recent trip to the Umbrian countryside of Italy I noticed that farro soup was on many menus. I tried it and decided that I had to make my own version. It is very important to use the richest, most delicious beef stock, preferably homemade, of course. —dymnyno
