Local organic grain production is an important step in creating a more sustainable food system. Join Don Lewis for a tour of Wild Hive Farm Community Grain Project and a look at how local milling plays an important role. Don will provide an overview of how Wild Hive sources and processes grain, including evaluating wheat, cleaning grain, the milling process, and packaging flour. He’ll also discuss the history of milling in the Hudson Valley and the important role grain production plays in sustainable agriculture. Participants will enjoy refreshments from Wild Hive’s very own café and bakery. Wild Hive Farm was founded to promote sustainable agriculture in the Hudson Valley through grain based local agriculture. The Wild Hive Farm Community Grain Project is where we stone mill Wild Hive Flours at our flour mill in Clinton Corners, NY. We use this fresh, organic flour to make Wild Hive Breads and Baked Goods. Other bakers also appreciate the freshness and flavor of our flours and use it to create their own high quality products. Supported by USDA Organic Research and Extension Initiative (OREI).
