Wednesday, July 7, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm – Heritage Wheat Field Day

After years of collecting heritage wheat seeds in villages in Europe and the Mideast,  the University of Massachusetts invites farmers and gardeners, chefs and researchers  to tour the UMass heritage wheat trials of rare grains, spanning little known ancient einkorn, emmer, and Transcaucasus wheat plants to delicious varieties beloved by French artisan bakers, and many more, on Wednesday, July 7, between 1 – 5 pm. Taste and bring home heritage wheat seeds that thrive in New England. Learn how to integrate small grains in a diversified rotation. Share practical experiences to build a local wheat-to-bread system. Taste high nutrition einkorn bread (pictured below)  that is safe for many people who suffer with gluten allergies. $10 donation for einkorn bread.  Contact Eli Rogosa to register: See: for registration form. Funded by NESARE.  The address of the UMass Research Farm is 8991 River Road (off Rt. 116), Deerfield, Massachusetts.
