Here at Macon Creek, we’re connecting #midwestgrown, heritage and organic grains with craft food and beverage makers— brewers, distillers, chefs, bakers, millers, and foodies.
Grains- The last frontier of local food
Interest in and dedication to local food systems continues to increase at a rapid rate. According to the USDA’s Census of Agriculture, national direct-to-consumer food sales are growing twice as fast as total agricultural sales. Local, specialty, and artisanal foods are considered one of the fastest growing business propositions. This growth and interest is exemplary in the midwest— Michigan is a national leader in direct-to-consumer food sales. Yet, the Midwest’s top three crops— corn, soybeans, and wheat— are mostly exported to other states and countries for animal feed.
