Yes, you can grow grains on your small farm! Learn how to make good use of your land with
grain rotations using heritage and modern strains of wheat, rye, field corn
(for milling), and more. At this
workshop designed to help you plant a crop as early as fall 2013, Lineage
Farm’s Jen Carson and Jon Ronsani will show off their fall-sown wheat and this
year’s polenta corn. NOFA-NY Grain
Coordinator Robert Perry and OGRIN’s Elizabeth Dyck will be walking the fields
with Jen and Jon. They will all
contribute to a thorough explanation of the essentials of organic grain
growing, including variety and seed sourcing, planting and monitoring the crop,
and harvesting at the appropriate point for processing. Find out how to assess your grain crop’s
quality and its potential for direct marketing, wholesale to millers and malt
houses, or even for animal feed. To
top it all off, we’ll see some small-scale grain-growing and processing
equipment in action, and talk about making use of the equipment and on-going
education available through New York’s grain-growing community.
