It’s a little weird to report on our own work (since Plainsong Farm hosts this website) but this is actually a significant development in the world of food and faith: we’re working with Honoré Farm and Mill to expand heirloom wheat growing for communion bread to our farm in Michigan.
Honoré Farm and Mill has been growing heirloom wheat on church-owned land, teaching congregations about industrial agriculture and milling wheat for use in communion bread making for a few years now. This is their first venture outside California.
As I wrote on our farm blog:
This fall, we plan to plant two types of heirloom winter wheat: one plot with seed funded by Slow Food, and one with seed from Honoré Farm & Mill. And that’s not all! We are also looking forward to hosting the Rev. Elizabeth DeRuff for a two-day “plant, pray and learn” experience. She plans to be with us the weekend of September 23rd and 24th.
