Farine is made from wheat unless it's a special kind of flour, such as « farine de sarrazin » « farine châtaigne ».
If you want to cook with "farine de châtaigne" (chestnut flour) mix it with regular flour in a proportion of one third to two thirds. It's too heavy to be used on it's own, but mixed with flour it adds flavour to cakes and desserts.
