Small-Scale Grain Raising
An Organic Guide to Growing, Processing and Using Nutritious Whole Grains for Home Gardeners and Local Farmers
More and more people are seeking out locally grown foods, including those they grow themselves, yet one of the main stumbling blocks has been finding local sources for grains. In this revised edition of his classic book, Gene Logsdon proves that anyone who has access to a large garden or small farm can (and should) think outside the agribusiness box and learn to grow healthy whole grains or beans alongside their fruits and vegetables.
Logsdon succinctly covers all the basics, from planting and dealing with pests, weeds and diseases to harvesting, processing, storing and using whole grains. There are even a few recipes sprinkled throughout, along with more than a little wit and wisdom.
