Bakers & Chefs Tour
Noon to 6 p.m.
This tour is ONLY for bakers and chefs who are either using products from local farms, or who are interested in doing so.
The tour will begin at Stalford Seed Farm in Tangent, proceed to A2R Farms south of Corvallis and wind up at Hunton’s Farm in Junction City for a meal and discussion.
Stalford Seed Farms is family owned and operated. Stalfords took the lead five years ago in transitioning acreage from grass seed to organic food crops. They currently grow hard red and soft white wheat, oats and dried beans.
A2R Farms is 800 acres of conventional grass seed fields transitioning to organic bean, grain and seed crops for local markets. They have hard red and soft white wheat planted, along with oats, beans and seeds.
Hunton’s Farm is a 3rd-generation family farm producing teff, hard red wheat, and a variety of beans and lentils on transitional acreage. They are moving forward with plans to install a grain mill and ean cleaning facility to serve Willamette Valley growers.
