The registration fee prior to August 1 is $250. Home bakers, commercial bakers, farmers, millers, food-lovers and others interested in local grains are invited. Attendees can tour Breadfarm, a local artisan bakery in Bow, and the Fairhaven Flour Mill, the state’s only organic flour mill, now located in Arlington. In addition, participants will learn how to incorporate grains in small farms and large gardens, among other information. The keynote presentations on Thursday and Friday evenings will be free and open to the public.
