Grain Storage and Processing
Jack and Anne Lazor farm in Westfield, VT, in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom, where they produce delicious yogurt from their Jersey cows. Jack is one of Vermont’s pioneer grain growers—he started growing grains to feed his family and neighbors, as well as the herd almost 30 years ago. At Butterworks, they grow over 150 acres of corn, oats, barley, peas, soybeans, spelt, rye, sunflowers, dry beans, and wheat for animal and human consumption.
This on-farm workshop will focus on grain topics related to grain storage, cleaning, drying, and processing value added products. Jack and Brent Beidler, of Beidler Family Farm, will also share their experiences from a trip earlier this summer to visit small scale grain farmers and processors in Ohio.
The workshop fee is $15.00 per person.
Lunch will be provided by the NOFA pizza oven.
