A little about Pioneer Valley Heritage Grains
Exploring the frontiers of CSA (community supported agriculture) through staple food production, with an emphasis on heirloom, land race varieties of grains and dried beans. Members share in the risk with the farmers, and the risk is minimized through diversified planting! From soil to farmer to community, everyone benefits by putting ecology, nutrition, and local economy first above profit and industry. Please visit www.localgrain.org for updates, more information and to sign the local grain mailing list. We work with Pioneer Valley farms (including our own) and New England farms to grow a mixture of wheat, oats, barley, rye, spelt, dry beans and corn.

In the past, shares have included: a variety of different wheats, oats, barley, rye, spelt, emmer, buckwheat, a variety of dried beans, and a variety of corn. The exact make up of this year's share won't be finalized until later this summer.

Grains are whole for keeping quality and health. Come to Wheatberry Bakery in Amherst and use our self-service milling station! Home mills are also widely available. And all the grains are delicious cooked whole.
