Small Scale Grains at Migrash Farm
March 23 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm
Join Future Harvest and the Common Grain Alliance at Migrash Farm for a session on how small-lot grains are meeting demand for local high-quality fresh flours and cereals. Hear from farmer Ian Hertzmark about his work as a farmer and miller, and learn more about how the Common Grain Alliance is building a vibrant, integrated, and sustainable grain economy in the Mid-Atlantic region.
We’ll talk soils, planting, and cultivating considerations for generating a successful small grain crop on small acreage. Along the way, we’ll cover the basics of soil and plant ecology, tools and methods for human-scale and minimally-mechanized small acreage grains, and general husbandry considerations. Additionally, we’ll cover some basics of harvesting, cleaning, and handling grains towards a high-quality human food product.
This event will conclude with a potluck lunch. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share.
