Farm Update

The crops have grown quite a bit since we last shared a Farm Update with you, so we thought you might like to see how the Joseph's Grainery Barley has grown since we last checked in...

It'll continue to grow for another couple of months before we harvest it in late July or early August.  Then you'll see barley from this field on the shelves, shipped to your door or even in some local beer come this Fall.

Speaking of local beer, it was great to meet many of you at the Palouse Pint Showcase!  For those who didn't get to attend, here are a few photos from the event:

They'll have brews made with Palouse Pint for you to taste, wonderful food from local chefs and bakers and all the proceeds go to Spokane's 2nd Harvest.  It has all the ingredients for a locally grown, good time!  Click here to purchase tickets and reserve your spot.

The Barley Is Growing!

The Joseph's Grainery Barley has emerged from the ground and we thought you might like to see it!

This barley is some of the first we planted this Spring on April 1st and this is what it looks like today. It won't be harvested until late July/early August.  From there it'll be available on the store shelves and online by Fall.  If you're in the Spokane area and lucky enough to taste a brew from a brewmaster who uses Palouse Pint malt, you might get to taste this very barley sometime next late Fall/early Winter or beyond.

Spring is a special time around any farm.  The miracle of life and growth is evident wherever you look.  It's always simply amazing to look at the unhulled barley seeds you see below and watch the fields as they turn into the tiny little plants you see above.

From Our Farm: Spring 2016

Spring is here and the sun is starting to make a more regular appearance, so we thought it was high time to show you how the winter crops weathered...

The Soft White Winter Wheat is looking good.  It weathered the winter months well.

This wheat was planted this past Fall and will continue to grow.  It will be harvested in late July/early August and will be on the shelves for your to buy come next Fall.

We're gearing up for all of our Spring Work. You can see a video of what that entails below, this video is a couple of years old, but will show you what we'll be busy doing:

Chicken Wheat Berry Soup

We've been sick, so that meant it was time to make some chicken noodle soup, but we decided to put a spin on it instead and make Chicken Wheat Berry Soup.  It did not disappoint!

It was soothing for the throat, warming for the aches and with a few drops of siracha or tapitio sauce thrown in, it'll definitely clear those sinuses!
