Preserving the power of heritage grains

October 16, 9:30 am - 4:00 pm CDT

Come join us as we Preserve the Power of Heritage Grains, highlighting Turkey Red wheat, a Slow Food Ark of Taste success story. Learn from passionate chefs, farmers, and Ark of Taste advocates why this particular wheat variety matters. See the fields in which it is grown and learn the agronomics, tour the mill where the kernels are stone-ground into flour, and experience a baking demo from a certified master baker. For lunch, everyone will taste the deliciousness of this heirloom variety along with several other Ark of Taste foods!

Bring your thirst for knowledge, appetites, cameras, sun hats, and fun energy. Throughout the day, there will be time to ask questions, purchase flour with an event discount in addition to the newly published Ark of Taste book, and meet new people. Everyone will leave knowing more about Turkey Red, additional Ark of Taste foods, and how to preserve these cultural and historically rich foods across the Midwest and the US. Looking forward to seeing you.
