The Grain Gathering: rebuilding local and regional grain networks. That’s the idea behind the The Grain Gathering. The annual event brings together professional bakers, home bakers, maltsters, millers, farmers, wheat breeders, food writers, wood-oven builders, and people who come to enjoy “summer camp for bread lovers”. The three days are filled with workshops, panel discussions and demonstrations. In addition to hands-on baking workshops for the home and professional baker, you will find a range of workshops which may include planting a backyard grain garden, brewing beer, making bagels in a wood fired oven, building a wood-fired oven, baking flatbreads in a tandoor oven, or comparing flavors in a variety of wheats and other grains. Four to six workshops and presentations run simultaneously to accommodate the wide diversity of grain-related interests.
Saturday culminates in an optional field trip to a local farm, mill, and bakery. We are working on the 2014 schedule but in the meantime, please visit the 2013 schedule for examples of some of the topics covered.
