Thank you for your interest in contributing to this important and exciting work. Our goal with this project is to create a new, resilient grain economy for our region. By returning the heritage grain varieties of our past to active production in our farmers' fields, we can restore this vibrant and delicious local food experience in our daily lives. You are helping make this inspiring vision possible!
