Workshop Session: Friday III

Brewers and bakers are creating niche markets for artisanal and heirloom grains. We’ll discuss how these crops can fit into rotations, and a variety of market options for specialty grains. Be inspired for your own operation as we share how La Crosse Distilling Company partners with local organic farmers for the synergistic benefit of all.

Patrick McHugh grows organic specialty grains and hemp on his Wisconsin farm.
Halee Wepking and her husband, John, grow organic dry beans, open-pollinated corn, and specialty food-grade small grains.
