SEMAP First Grain Gathering

March 11, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Where: Plimoth Grist Mill, 6 Spring Ln, Plymouth, MA 02360
When: Saturday, March 11, 1-3pm

Please join us on Saturday, March 11 from 1-3pm at the Grist Mill in Plymouth, MA for the first state-wide grain gathering in the 21st Century!

Farmers, Millers, Bakers, Chefs, Maltsters, Brewers and Distillers, you are invited to the first state-wide grain gathering in the 21st Century!

There are already half a dozen producers, processors and value-adding food visionaries out there, from the Cape to the Berkshires, harvesting and offering wheat, rye, spelt, corn and oats. Come hear presentations from them and meet others who want to join in. We are calling on you to support, bolster, enlarge, propagate and otherwise help grow the resurgent local grain economy in Massachusetts.

Tour the Plimoth Grist Mill, sample 100% locally-grown bread and other goodies, and help to place a worthy bread basket on the Farm-to-table food movement.
