This is a snippet from Bob Quinn Organic Farmer on tour with his new book #GrainByGrain. Recorded March 27, 2019 at Patagonia Cardiff by the Sea.
Bob says here that as we are each participating in an agricultural act when we support organic farmers.
His book tells the story of his transition from chemical farming to becoming one of the most successful growers of ancient wheat.
Bob is a myth buster. His belief in the health giving value of organically grown Khorasan wheat, branded with the high standards Kamut label, began when friends and customers with wheat sensitivities reported getting benefit from this ancient grain.
My journey, getting to know Bob and his enchanted wheat began in 2010. This wheat—that I call “Plant Your Dream Seeds” is part of a #WinningBackOurSacredSeeds starter Kit produced by Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company.
Thanks to Patagonia Provisions Sausalito for sponsoring a four city #GrainByGrain tour. We sampled delightful products—including open faced wedges of their sockeye salmon on KAMUT international bread at our gathering.
Check out the line of easy to prepare products featuring Kamut.
I met Eric Eaton, director of sales of Patagonia Provisions a few weeks ago at #expowest.
Bob has been a regular presenter at the The National Heirloom Exposition the last four years. My #SeedDream is to have the Patagonia Provisions team participate in this year’s #heirloomexpo, September 10-11-12, 2019 in Santa Rosa.
