Local grain CSA

I just ran across http://www.localgrain.org/csa, and have signed up for a share. I'm excited to try out some of the heirloom wheats. More info in December when I pick it up.

Hello loydb,
I hope you enjoy baking with your local, heirloom wheat.
(I joined a local grain CSA last year; the varieties grown are not heirloom, but they are grown organically.
I've loved baking with the flour, and had the opportunity to bake some bread for the farmer, using his wheat :^)  ).

Thanks for the link! I've got about 25# of organic hard red wheat on hand right now, so that will get me to December. It will be interesting to see what's in the final package.
