Western Massachusetts Grains, Grown in Long Term Organic Rotation
Saturday, July 21, 2012
Hello out there...Adam here. Here is a picture of our wheat crop in the foreground and barley in the background! Despite the hot dry weather the early season small grains are coming in fine and the corn an bean crops look good as well. We will need some rain before too long to bring in the late crops successfully. The drought will be driving up food prices, and so maybe the recent focus on localized production will serve as a buffer against climate related food price fluctuations as the Earth warms. Participating in CSA may become the safest,most economical method of buying food!
