A recent piece from Kathryn Quanbeck at Civil Eats takes us to an event on building the local grain economy. As she summarizes,
There were, it seems, three big take-aways:
- The industrial grain system is highly concentrated and is feeding you, more or less, milled starch.
- The local grain economy is in its infancy, and needs some serious infrastructure to grow.
- Local grains taste better and are probably better for you.
