SAEA 2012 Camas Country Mill, Willamette Valley, OR

2 Comments

During the 2012 Sustainable Agriculture Education Association meeting, we got to tour a local grain mill. They serve bakeries in Portland and Seattle with regionally grown grain flours including wheat, teff and rye. The family that started the mill was in the grass seed business, which is huge in the Willamette Valley. With the 2008 recession, the grass seed business took a hit everywhere and the family worked on transitioning their business to focus on: food for humans (grains), food for animals (forage) and food for the soil (cover crops).

Apologies for the background noise, the mill was running!
