Building a Bakery from Scratch

Let the storytelling begin
Ashley and I are starting a bakery. That has been the plan for some time now, but as 2022 rolled in, we put the plan into motion and started the process of bringing the bakery into existence. This is the start of my part of the story.

Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance's Kitchen Trials

Connecting grain growers to millers, bakers, and grain visionaries in our region
Bringing back grains that have fallen out of favor in our food system requires farmers to relearn how to grow them and to determine what grows best in their region. The Kitchen Trials are a “citizen science” effort to understand more about how these grains bake as each region offers a different growing environment that impacts the grains (protein level, flavor, etc.). The knowledge gained will inform the effort to create viable supply networks for large-scale production and consumption.
