Cascadia Grains Conference 2020
January 19, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
The 8th Cascadia Grains Conference will bring together 300 farmers, bakers, brewers, distillers, brokers, investors, policy-makers and others to strengthen the role of grains in the agricultural and food economy of the Pacific Northwest.
The Friday Field Trips throughout the region and the full Conference on Saturday at the South Puget Sound Community College features workshops and hands-on classes that focus on three value-added grain enterprises: poultry and livestock feed, brewing and distilling, and artisan baking. Over the last three years the conference has developed into key educational event for producers and end-users and an important opportunity to network and collaborate along the value chain. Also included in Saturday will be a Resource Fair and Networking Sessions as well as a full breakfast, lunch and dinner. The conference will conclude with a Best of the Cascadia Tasting featuring local ales and spirits.
At the conference:
* Farmers learn about grain production, connect with scale appropriate buyers, and learn strategies on increasing demands for cereals used for poultry and livestock feeds, artisan breads, brewing, and distilling.
* Processors & end-users get an inside look into grain production, quality, and brokering relationships to get the grain you want and need.
* Investors, brokers & local government officials get the scoop on rising investment and policy opportunities.
