Inland Northwest Artisan Grains™ Podcast Series

About the Podcast

The goal of the Inland Northwest Artisan Grains™ Podcast is to support the development of artisan grains values-based supply chains and production of

value-added artisan grains products in the Inland Northwest region of

Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Montana. 

The objectives of the Inland Northwest Artisan Grains™ podcast series include:

   

Provide education and support for the development of Inland Northwest artisan grains supply chains and value-added products during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Provide producers, bakers, brewers, community development practitioners and technical assistance providers with in-depth understanding of the process, business relationships and community assets necessary to establish local/regional artisan grains value-chains.

Assist podcast guests (farmers and businesses involved in artisan grain values-based supply chains) in identifying opportunities for improvement and/or expansion through an in-depth analysis of their business relationships and market positions.

Provide a novel marketing opportunity for podcast guests to connect with existing customers and to expand their customer base.

Conduct IRB-approved research using a case study approach to understand the opportunities and challenges associated with developing and operating artisan grain value-chains.
