The Local Grain Revolution

For most Canadians wishing to adopt a more local diet, the overwhelming rise in demand in the past few years has left a large question mark hovering over the heads of many; where is all this local food so many are demanding?
The state of farming and food production in North America has clearly evolved into such a poor state of affairs, little infrastructure and incentive remain to respond to this demand for local product. While fruits and vegetables may be the most easily accessible local foods at farmers’ markets and select grocery stores, grains are not often referred to when speaking of local food. When we start to imagine which locally grown plant-based foods are not accessible in sufficient quantities, we can list off wheat, oats, barley, rye, spelt, flax, hemp, corn, and leguminous plants such as beans and lentils.
