Field day at Ironwood Organics
Tuesday July 26, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
Chris Wooding has been growing small grains in Athens, Ontario for many years, with the mission to be a leader in growing nutrient dense heritage grains while supporting a strong baking and brewing community. He’s bred and produced multiple varieties of wheat, rye and oats – as well as the pseudocereal buckwheat! Ironwood Organics is committed to building soil health and building community health through sustainable agriculture.
Chris has accumulated plenty of technical knowledge – and lots of small grains equipment as well! Come in the morning for a field tour, bring a bagged lunch to enjoy on the farm, and stay for an equipment walkthrough in the afternoon. Learning from Chris’s successes and challenges will give new small grain growers a head start on their journey, and seasoned growers some new and innovative ideas.
