Kneading Conference

July 25 @ 7:00 am - July 26 @ 3:00 pm

For nearly two decades, the Maine Grain Alliance has been uniting bakers, millers, maltsters, brewers, grain professionals, and farmers, through meaningful conversations aimed at strengthening our regional grain economy.

This year’s 17th annual Kneading Conference (July 25-26) will see the introduction of the first-ever Organic Farmer Track— a series of educational workshops focused on organic grain cultivation and landrace, and heritage seed restoration. 

Workshops include:

  • Pseudograins with Will Bonsall, The Scatterseed Project
  • Heritage Grain Seed Restoration with Paul Pollaro, Maine Grain Alliance TOPP Project Manager
  • Sunrise Grain Walk with Richard Roberts, Director of Maine Grain Alliance Seed Restoration
  • Strategies and Opportunities for Growing Organic Grain with Meg Mitchell (MOFGA), Sara & Marcus Flewelling (Aurora Mills & Farm), and others.
  • Reintroducing Heritage & Landrace Grain Resources with Tristan Noyes & Paul Pollaro

If you currently grow grains organically or are interested in doing so, we would love to offer you free admission to the entire conference, so long as you plan to attend the above workshops. Visit our registration page and enter the code FarmScholar at checkout to secure your spot today!


The Organic Farmer Track is made possible through support of the USDA’s Transition to Organic Partnership Program
