2019 is the 7th year of the Conference, this is the mainstay event of our year: over 400 growers, processors, distributers and end-users gather to answer the question “How do we make a local grain economy work?”


Revitalizing a local grain economy in the Cascadia Region

The Cascadia Grains Conference brings together farmers, bakers, brewers, distillers, brokers, investors, policy-makers and others to strengthen the role of grains in our local food economy by sharing the latest science, techniques, and developments, as well as creating a space in which new business, policy and research relationships can form and existing ones can be strengthened. 


We aim to convene and connect growers, processors, brokers, investors, and policy-makers across the value chain


The conference provides a platform for the latest science, techniques, research, market opportunities and hands-on learning


Working to cultivate an economically viable network of market opportunities for locally-sourced value-added products
