Growing small grains like wheat, rye, barley and oats can help farmers prevent nutrient run off and protect water quality -but the”grain chain” is a complex network of growers, processors, bakers, chefs and consumers. How can farmers add these crops to their rotation and access the food grade market? Can eating more of these locally grown foods help change the agricultural landscape for the better?
