About the Podcast
Welcome to the Inland Northwest Artisan Grains™ second podcast series
"Field to Flour"
This series follows the story of artisan grains as they journey from Inland Northwest farms, through local mills, and into the hands of craft bakers across the region. Our guests include both farmers who are producing fresh milled flour and the bakers and retailers using their flours to create whole grain artisan breads and baked goods for their local communities.
Each artisan grain story starts with the unique operations of grain growers in the greater Inland Northwest that are working with their local ecosystems and communities to grow different varieties of grain, using sustainable practices, to produce an excellent flour. Next we visit with craft bakers and chefs using these local flours to create delicious whole grain breads and baked goods.
Follow along as hosts Ali Schultheis and Colette DePhelps explore the artisan grains movement and why its worth the extra effort to make the journey from field to flour.
The "Field to Flour" podcast series is produced and released by
University of Idaho Extension.
