Local Origin: Athens, OH
Three years before we launched Shagbark Seed & Mill, in 2010, a case of existential anxiety begged the question, Why are grains and beans not part of the burgeoning local foods movement? That was 2007, when we saw that even the most robust farmers markets around Ohio and around the country, were missing local grains and beans.
After all, all our meals made from our visits to markets still required beans, a bag of rice, corn tortillas, a box of noodles, which all came from uncertain and distant origins. These foods provide dense packages of heart-healthy protein, fiber, energy, and nutrients, not to mention flavor and texture.
