April 20 - In the Grain Pit: Modern Missives from Small-Scale California Grain

Melanie Wong | Apr 14, 202112:44 AM    

"The small-scale grain movement in California has been growing and gaining steam for years, but the shifting market demands in the last year have certainly infused the grain community with new energy. In this conversation, we will hear from four endeavors around the state that will give the farming community a window into the current climate for California grain.
Zion Tadesse, founder of Sheba Farms LLC, will describe her ambitious cross-border enterprise growing and processing teff both in California and in Ethiopia. Rob Barnett, farmer, community organizer and aficionado of cooperative economics will discuss the nascent statewide equipment-sharing collective. Nan Kohler, owner of Grist and Toll Urban Flour Mill for nearly the past decade will fill us in on the novelty of this particular moment in local grain. Finally, Leslie Person Ryan, longtime farmer and CEO of Sweet Wheel Farm will talk about the experience of being a “newbie” grain farmer. Leslie just added grain to her rotation this year and will talk about how grain fits into the overall ecosystem of her farm and offer a glimpse into the incentives for and challenges with getting started with this vital staple crop.
