Best Grains for a Small Urban Farm?

4932 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  StillStanding
Hello all! I'm in a rather cold climate (hardiness zone 4), and I am a part of a group who wants to get a small urban farm (a few acres) and community plots up and running.

I was wondering what your grain suggestions would be for a small urban farm to grow? We are especially interested in heritage/heirloom varieties.

Well, you can experiment with oats or wheat if you want. Not worth it except for any lessons it might teach.

There are no hybrid small grains, to speak of, so any varieties are heirloom in the sense of growing true from harvested seed. The old varieties are susceptible to diseases that are now endemic and are therefore no longer practical.
