Eleanor and Scott present highlights of their first year's progress growing heritage grains, cereals, and other previously underrepresented staples, such as amaranth, millet, oats, etc., on small-scale plots. Staple crops are field-grown, harvested, and processed on our southeast Michigan homestead to generate and analyze relevant agronomic data to enable growers better to meet their goal of strengthening food security more confidently and successfully.
