Small Grains

Since the mid 1800’s, western Washington has grown wheat and other small grains.  As farmland was developed and a need for local grains became desired, wheat, barely, and rye grew became common in our area.  Today small grains are still being produced with local plant breeders working to develop new varieties with improved yields, pest tolerance, and local climate tolerance.
