We’re excited to announce that Common Grain Alliance has partnered with Friends of Peirce Mill, CRAFT Chatham, and the Philadelphia Grain and Malt Symposium team to bring the Mid-Atlantic grain value chain together, from Pennsylvania down through northern North Carolina. Drawing from the success of annual grain gathering events dating back to 2014, the Mid-Atlantic Grain Fair and Conference will carry forward the mission of building a stronger regional grain value chain through networking, education, and sharing products made with regional grain and staple foods.
The 2023 Mid-Atlantic Grain Fair & Conference will be held at Peirce Mill and UDC-CAUSES in Washington, DC. Over this two-day event, we will come together to celebrate Mid-Atlantic grains and discuss ways to strengthen the Mid-Atlantic grain value chain.
Please Save The Dates and plan to join us for inspiring speakers, exhibits, workshops, tastings, and hands-on learning opportunities, all showcasing the robust nature and possibility of Mid-Atlantic grains.
This free, family-friendly event at Peirce Mill will be open to the general public and serve as a celebration of Mid-Atlantic grains.
This all-day conference will welcome grain practitioners and enthusiasts from across the Mid-Atlantic grain value chain, from breeders and farmers, to millers and distributors, to bakers, pasta-makers, brewers, maltsters, distillers, and other grain artisans. Early-bird registration will open up in March 2023, with a discount for members of the Common Grain Alliance.
Area mills are encouraged to to celebrate our milling heritage by planning annual celebrations at their respective sites sometime during the month of June. Find a destination for your next mill adventure or submit information for activities at your site.Read More
