Meet Lena Lentz Hardt, a true original.
Lena Lentz Hardt of Lentz Spelt Farms grows much of the original cereal grain you’ll find in your bowl of Organic Ancient Grain Oatmeal. Lentz Farms was handed down to her from her pioneer family who settled the Columbia Plateau of the Inland Pacific Northwest. But despite her farm’s impressive history, Lena’s commitment is to the future. Her enthusiasm for both biodiversity and dryland conservation tillage has inspired her to help revive ancient grains in the region. Grains like einkorn, emmer and specifically the nutritious spelt we use in our Farm to Table Organic Ancient Grain Oatmeal. Lena’s high standards make her a perfect partner-farmer for Farm to Table.
Brad Bailie Grows Great Food from Living Soil.
When Farm to Table visited Brad Bailie’s farm in Washington state, we were surprised at the amount of science we saw. As a farmer with a vision, Brad loves to explore the wondrous workings of organics. Brad believes in science that creates connectivity. His cutting edge green-crop organic fertilizer systems feed the microbes that feed the crops that, in turn, feed us. In fact, Brad’s research with the USDA and university scientists has made him legendary in the Pacific Northwest. But on a more practical note, his dedication to state-of-the-art organic practices is responsible for the absolute finest grain available. One taste of your breakfast and you’ll be very, very happy that Brad is a Farm to Table farmer.
