Grain CSA questions

poptart | Aug 21, 2013 07:09 AM

Hi Everyone,

Looking to buy local wheatberries, I found a thread on chowhound that mentioned a grain CSA from Pioneer Valley. This looks great, with a mix of whole grains and beans.
I would love to sign up for something like this but have some questions.

- As a household of one, would a half-share be too much? I cook a lot, bake bread, use a lot of beans and whole grains and bring lunch to work every day but am not sure how much a bushel translates to for one person.

- Is grinding flour from whole grains doable in a small apartment kitchen?

- Is there a place to buy whole grains and beans in bulk that are grown in the area?

- how long will these whole grains and beans keep if stored properly? I don't have a large freezer so they would be stored at room temp.

Thanks!
