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.
