Come to Lyle Spiesschaert’s farm to Celebrate Great Grains!

Lyle and Charlene discuss the trial grain crop.

We’re gathering the community together to get closer to the source of our nutrition. To look at what our farmscape is – from the ground up. From studying the soil, the riparian zone, the animal inputs and the working farmscape – get closer to your environment and to the source of your nutrition.

At Celebrate Great Grains we show our local community that our farmland – and our farmscape – are necessary and important for production of great tasting and nutritious food for our town.

Join us in celebration of eating locally, drinking locally, and supporting your local farmer!
