Organic grains book

Join Chelsea Green Publishing and friends of Jack Lazor in celebration of his inspirational work and the release of The Organic Grain Grower (Chelsea Green, 2013) on Sunday, August 4 from 1 to 3 p.m. at The Gateway Center in Newport, Vermont. Special guests include organic farming pioneer Eliot Coleman and Brent Beidler, president of the Northern Grain Growers Association.
All are welcome at this free and public event. Signed copies of Jack's book will be available for sale. Complimentary food and beverages will be provided, thanks to generous donations by Organic Valley and Strafford Organic — among others.

Jack has long been an inspiration to farmers and grain growers, as Eliot Coleman notes in his eloquent Foreword to The Organic Grain Grower:

"Jack Lazor did not wait for a new movement to inspire him. Jack inspired the movement. Jack began reclaiming the small farm's grain heritage right from the start of his farm many years ago. That is why this book is such a delight. These are the words of someone who has talked to all the old-timers and done it all himself. It is like acquiring hundreds of years of knowledge in one book."

Never before has there been a book about growing organic grains that is applicable both for the home-scale and professional farming scale. The Organic Grain Grower will be a classic for decades to come and a crucial addition to the library of any farmer, homesteader, gardener, or seed saver.
