A Closer Look at Barley

Farmers across the United States grow barley to be used in foods, drinks, and animal feed. Using the latest technologies and equipment, farmers work to produce a healthy, quality product.

From a Farmer:

“Barley is one of the oldest cultivated crops in existence and has long been used for different food uses. Now that people are using ancient grains more and more, we’re continuously finding benefits from the use of food barley.” – Doyle Lentz, Barley Farmer and Chairman of the North Dakota Barley Council
