Last weekend we picked up our bags of grain from the Creston Grain CSA while we were in Nelson. We received about 80 pounds of a variety of grains including oats, red fife wheat, hard red spring wheat, kamut, spelt and a small bag of lentils. In the coming weeks we’ll show some photos of the cooking we do with these grains and how we process them. In the meantime, we’re enjoying the fact that we have been part of a history making group, the first Community Supported Agriculture Grain Project in British Columbia, and as early adopters and investors we are now able to reap the rewards of the harvest.
Stay tuned for news of next year’s project which sounds like it will be expanded to include more crops, more land and more shares.
