This is a series of three workshops regarding the growing and production of grain crops. It’s the final year of our NE SARE grant lead by Elizabeth Dyck, the coordinator of the Organic Growers’ Research and Information-Sharing Network (OGRIN). The training program will be a series of three intensive 75 minute online short courses with video field days/workshops that will largely be taught by farmers and NE Grain Experts and located on farms and/or at processing venues.
Session Three: Processing – dehulling (during which the results of the project’s research on dehulling will be presented and discussed) and other types of grain-processing. To include the major processing options that add values to grains, e.g., dehulling, milling, oat rolling, etc. Also Marketing – setting product price, finding markets, distribution strategies, exploring equipment sharing, joint processing, and marketing options
