beans, grains, and frozen fruit jams in the wv

There will be a panel discussion on growing beans and grains in the Willamette Valley on January 20, from 1-4 p.m. at the Extension Building in Eugene.  Two farms north of us, Sunbow Farm and Stalford Seed Farms, participated in “Bean and Grain Field Trials” last year, and representatives will be on hand to discuss what worked and what didn’t with growing, harvesting, and sales to the public.  Beans.  Beans, I tell you.  Click here to download a flyer with more information about the panel discussion.

Also, since I’m announcing stuff, you definitely want to sign up for the next Master Food Preserver course, June in January, a class on making jams with frozen fruit.  It’s *way* too cheap at $25 for the class, which runs from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on January 24.  Click here for the link to download the registration form for this class and others, or simply sign up at the Extension Building when you attend the panel discussion.

    I will see you at the meeting. I am excited to meet Harry & Harry. I may call the stalfords and have them bring some wheat & beans. You don’t happen to have a flour mill, do you? Thanks for the post & getting the word out!

    I don’t have a flour mill. My baking is way too sporadic and amateur for the investment, but freshly milled flour is sooo good. Jennifer at Flavors of the Umpqua (see link to her blog on the list to the right) is the local-ish expert on milling your own grain.

    I’ll see you at the meeting! :)
