Quinoa is an ancient pseudograin in the same family as amaranth originating from the Andes. It has been a source of protein for the Incas, who called it the Mother Grain, for thousands of years. Not only does it provide a complete protein, it's also high in calcium, phosphorus and iron.
About Mendocino Grain Project
In the midst of the pandemic young farmer Rachel Britten took over the Mendocino Grain Project from the retiring founder. The Grain Project began in 2009 in an effort to provide their community with healthy grains and local food security. Rachel grows and mills grains in Mendocino County, California and because they have the capacity to clean and process grain for other farmers the ultimate goal is to provide what is necessary so that other local farmers can join the effort to grow more staple crops in Mendocino County.
