So here's the story. Our work has been nominated to receive national recognition! We are in the running to be named Entrepreneur of the Year at the upcoming Slow Money National Gathering. The winner will be chosen by a combination of jury selection, voting at the event and popular vote online. That's where you come in. You can help us win this award, which includes a cash prize of $50,000 to be invested in our sustainable business.
You all have helped us get this far. With more than 50 acres of heritage and ancient grains in productionn locally, we are already way beyond what we every dreamed of. It wasn't too long ago that we were milling whatever wheat we could find in our garage.
But, now we have an opportunity to grow and establish a long-lasting local grain economy in our beautiful state.
Slow Money is all about investing moeny in projects that are good for the community and the land.
