Goals of Regional Wheat Growing
The goals of the Southern California Wheat Enterprise are not hard to summarize. Like most such endeavors, the vision is to improve the grains and flour available to our homes and neighborhoods. And that added value is in three important areas:
Grown in our region … under sustainable farming practices …. free of chemicals & contaminants … available direct from growers to mills & bakers
Flour that is freshly milled … nutritious … good flavored … good for baking
Provide specific varieties of modern, heirloom, landrace, and ancient grains from specific farms and farmers.
