Help- how to buy grain direct from farmers


Recommended Posts


I like everyone else would like to start my own distillery. In am in the Oregon and Washington State area and I know WA requires a craft distillery to produce its product from at least 51% grain grown from within the state. Oregon doesn't have that requirement, but I would like to support local farmers, and the local economy, and purchase things like; corn, wheat, barley, rye, etc direct from local farmers in Oregon and/or Washington.

What I can't find is an easy way to do this. Can anyone help? How do you buy things like corn or wheat from a local farmer? Where? Is there a co-op or certain place/website I can go to to do this?

Thank you for your time!

I would suggest you contact Great Western Malting. They're a large supplier with a location in Vancouver, WA and they have many suppliers in Washington and Oregon.

If you talk with them and tell them you only want Washington grown grain they should be able to get it for you. Might take some minor finessing but I know several craft distilleries in the state are using them.
