Gaston - Oregon
Anthony and Carol Boutard’s Ayers Creek Farm near Gaston, Oregon produces food that chefs fight to get. They carefully select seed from the best plants in their crops to ensure constant improvement. Their Migration Barley includes so-called naked barleys - more nutritious varieties with an edible seed hull - from Japan, Nepal, Italy, Arabia, and North Africa. It’s great in soup, composed salads, or grain bowls.
