Rusted Rooster Farm Grain Walk
3:30 PM, Saturday, July 30, 2016
Rusted Rooster Farm
Sean and Sandra O’Donnell invite anyone interested in grain production on a walking tour of their grain fields followed by snacks and discussion. They are growing a wide variety of cereal grains (wheat, oats, barley, flint corn, and millet) and legumes (field peas, soybeans, and dry beans), and have special projects producing seed of improved Red Fife wheat and experimenting with small-scale grain drying and storage methods. This is a great chance to discuss the nuts and bolts of organic grain production with the O’Donnells and others. Bring a snack to share. The event is free.
