100% Michigan Grown Staple Crop Seeds that Fit Your Plant-based Lifestyle Goals


Progression of Planting the 2020 Spring Grains

Scott Hucker

Well, this is not how I expected the planting to begin.  I had planned to expand stocks of varieties that had limited inventories. There are a few noteworthy varieties that I wished to be able to sell as 7 gram packets instead of only 50 selected seeds.  Instead, I will be focusing on varieties that meeting these requirements:

  • Are the most easily processed for eating (no hulls)
  • Supply range of proteins and calories

I will plant them in the sequence of their expected harvest to be able to provide bird netting coverage.
