The Seventh Annual Hudson Valley Value-Added Grain School will feature expert speakers on grain storage management and a panel of progressive farmers sharing expertise on grain storage, handling grain for seed, and packaging grains for retail. Lastly, heritage corn as well as heritage and ancient small grain varieties will be discussed by university researchers with years of experience evaluating heritage, ancient, and specialty corn and small grain varieties, including for organic systems.
