Tuality Plains Great Grains Fundraising Dinner

August 25, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Enjoy a locally sourced dinner & help grow the local grain economy.

Grain, the missing ingredient in many locally sourced meals, just became a little more local and accessible. Now in its third year, Tuality Plains Great Grains has created a miller’s job, a malting company, and the grains have become a favorite with a growing number of regional home bakers, bake shops, brewers, and distillers.

Our focus is local food, local jobs, and farming practices that keep our soil healthy for future generations.

Now we need your help to continue! Plan to attend the Great Grains fundraising dinner on Sunday, August 25. All proceeds from the event go toward community outreach, marketing, and education.

While enjoying a tasty dinner you’ll learn the history of Tuality Plains Great Grains, how we have developed the program, and what we can all do to make this regional effort grow stronger. Join in the conversation on how to “share food across the fence” and build community between farmers and our urban centers.
