COXSACKIE, N.Y. — Join Cornell Cooperative Extension for the 3rd Annual Hudson Valley Value-Added Grains School and trade show on Friday, February 10, 2017 at Pegasus Restaurant, 10885 State Route 9W in Coxsackie.
The Grains School includes a variety of expert talks and a trade show, and is intended to support 1) burgeoning interests in small grains for the artisan baking, and craft brewing and distilling industries, and 2) interest in other grains and oilseeds, as well as innovative marketing strategies for adding value to grain crops. There will also be multiple opportunities for networking.
The 2017 Program will include updates on Hudson Valley grain trials, understanding malting grain options for NYS markets, a big-picture perspective on the growth of value-added grains markets nationwide, and grower talks on adopting malting barley into vegetable operations and on novel marketing approaches and strategies to add value layers to grain.
