Are you growing wheat, spelt and other small grains such as oats, barley, rye or triticale – or interested in getting started? At the Grain Buyers Meet and Greet, you will have the opportunity to hear about and discuss how to maximize the economic benefits of being part of or entering the grains market! There will be a specific focus on small grains in this session. The session will begin with several buyers providing a brief presentation on their business, what products they are looking for and what they have to offer farmers. Following the presentations, buyers will be separated into breakout rooms. Attendees will then have the option to move between rooms and ask buyers their more specific questions. All types and scales of farmers are welcome. Don’t miss this chance to get your answers to your grain market questions straight from the source!

Participating buyers:
Amanda Peer with The Anderson Inc.
Carmelle Duperron with SureSource
Harro Wehrmann with Wehrmann Grain & Seed
Marshall King with King Organics
Melissa McKeown with 1847 Stone Milling
Ryan Vandenheuvel from Field Farms Marketing Ltd.
