Small Grain Production - 270

125.00

In this one day class we’ll be looking at different methods of planting, harvest, and post harvest processing for wheat, oats, and rye. We’ll see harvesting equipment from the scythe and the flail to the combine. We’ll be able to use some of this equipment in the field, although like all grain growers, we are at the mercy of the weather and the ripeness of the grain. We have plots of grain from 3/4 of an acre to just a few square feet. There will be several different varieties of wheat and oats both modern and historic to compare and a discussion on the pros and cons of different grain growing approaches.
