What's So Cool About Landrace Grains?

The past few years have seen a surge in interest in historical, landrace and heirloom grains from farmers, bakers, chefs, brewers, and distillers. What makes these old-school crops so special? What market opportunities do they offer? This workshop will look at the pros and cons of these unusual grain varieties from several perspectives – agronomic, ecologic, economic, and gastronomic. Workshop participants will come away with a better understanding of how traditional grain varieties promote sustainable farming systems; what it takes to grow and sell them; and ideas for supplying the enthusiastic and growing demand for traditional grains.
