  If it doesn't have a story, we don't grow it.  Known as a dietary staple for thousands of years, our ancestors once relied upon these ancient grain varieties to provide nourishment and sustenance. 

We look forward to working with passionate manufacturers, bakers, distillers, and brewers.     Please see our products page for our wholesale, retail and grain share options.
