Specialty Grain Collection

Garden-sized Packets of Rare Heritage and Ancient Grains

We now have more than 175 volunteers in our Heritage Grain Trials Program growing and gathering data for 223 heritage and ancient grains.   In order to accelerate our mission to help establish local grain economies in the Rocky Mountain West, we are making available to the public sample packets of our most successful varieties to date.  We call this our Specialty Grain Collection.  We want you to grow them, increase their seed and then share them widely.  We are charging a small fee (5.95 per pkt.) to cover the expenses of getting these grains packaged and sent to you.  Most packets will contain at least 100 seeds, a common sample size for grain trials.  Since most of the grains are self-pollinating, this will be enough seed to avoid most inbred depression during seed increase.  With your continued help we plan to make available many more varieties and larger quantities.  See individual listings for availability updates or email lee-ann (at) rockymountainseeds.org.
