11th Annual Grain Growers Conference

The Essex Resort
Essex, VT

"Grains in a Diversified Farming System" is our conference theme. Paul Muller of Full Belly Farm in California is our keynote speaker and will share how their farm has integrated growing grains into their dynamic vegetable operation along with his farm partners. We will hear how they have blended grains into their crop rotations and about their direct marketing approach.

We will also hear from Scott Fisk from the University of Oregon who will present research on the barley breeding program, including disease resistance, winter-hardiness and end-use quality, all with the end goal of developing winter barley varieties for malting and food.

There will also be sessions on hulless oats, gluten free grains, malting grains, distilling, equipment, marketing, heirloom grains, raising grains animal feed, hands-on baking and more! Guest bakers this year will be from Misery Loves Company (MLC) and the Red Hen Baking Company.

Join us for our 11th Annual Grain Growers Conference!
