Homegrown Whole Grains
Grow, Harvest & Cook Wheat, Barley, Oats, Rice, Corn & More
Sara Pitzer

Learn to grow, harvest, store, grind, and cook with nine of the most popular whole grains: wheat, corn, barley, millet, oats, rice, rye, spelt, and quinoa. It’s surprisingly easy, and it takes less space than you might imagine. For example, with just 1000 square feet, a backyard farmer can grow enough wheat to harvest 50 pounds in a single afternoon — enough for 50 loaves of delicious fresh bread. Complete growing instructions and recipes are included.

Sara Pitzer began learning and writing about grains when she lived in Amish country in Central Pennsylvania. Later she had the opportunity to gather local lore in the Southeast and California, and more recently, she has observed small-scale rice growing through agri-tourism programs in Thailand as well as quinoa production in Peru. In addition to Homegrown Whole Grains, she has written more than a dozen cookbooks and travel guides, and has worked as a newsSoftcover reporter in North Carolina, where she lives.
