I wish this could be done in my area. What a fantastic idea and it sounds like one of those "lost ways" that has been revived with neighbors looking out for each other, cutting out the bureaucratic leeches and putting more money in the pockets that do the work. Neighbors helping neighbors & keeping it local.

    This is going on right here "in my own backyard" and I knew nothing about it. This is so interesting. Thank you for sharing @LaurieLovesLearning. I'm going to do some searching and see how close some of these growers are to me.

    @Michelle D I changed the title to make sure other members in the region see it as well.

    I think it's a great idea to start up anywhere.

    Back in 1996 there was a farmer's cooperative and I bought some Spelt, and wheat through another person's order. That was a smart move on my part. I have used Spelt off and on for years. Now I am into the wheat and have my own grinder. The wheat isn't as heavy and is much lighter when ground! I ground some wheat this summer and had to put some into the frig and store it.
