In addition to highlighting the fresh grown and milled barley, rye and wheat, there were baked goods, distilled products, tastings, music, soil education, and plenty of children’s activities.

Charlene and Richard received a photo highlighting the year of growing grains from Lyle, and music rocked the barn!

Plan to spend the day at the farm during the Celebrate Great Grains event in September 2019!
