Mallory Interview in National ‘Foodie News’ Newsletter

The October national Foodie News newsletter, a publication of the American Farm Bureau Federation in Washington, D.C., included  an article about locally grown wheat making a comeback in New England. It included an interview with Ellen Mallory, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension sustainable agriculture specialist, who explained that interest in local wheat began as organic dairy farmers in Maine and Vermont began to grow their own organic grains to feed cattle and save money. Interest expanded, however, as the local foods trend prompted other farmers to grow their own grains for local flour and bread.
