2021 Grain Growers Conference - The Resonance of Rye
Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - 12:30pm to Wednesday, March 31, 2021 - 2:00pm
Rye has great potential as a grain crop for Vermont and the Northeast and we have only scratched the surface. Many farmers know it and grow it as a cover crop. But, it also yields well and makes great tasting food and beverages. This program introduces you to growing cereal rye for human consumption on Vermont farms, post-harvest handling, cleaning and storage, and a sourdough baking demonstration.
Speakers include Todd Hardie of Thornhill Farm and Jeffrey Hamelman, world-renowned professional baker.
