At the Cascadia Grains Conference we take extra efforts to support small businesses that are interested in supporting our community both economically through our farmers and in sustainable practices. We have chosen several businesses that are working in our region to develop thoughtful menus using as much local, in season, and organic produce, meats and grains. We hope that you can enjoy not just thoughtful workshops and classes, but also thoughtful meals that are healthy and sustainable. ENJOY!
