Healthy Living Loves Local: Nitty Gritty Grain Co.
Located in Charlotte, VT, members of the Kenyon family have farmed the fields in and around the Champlain valley for seven generations. The result of their life’s devotion is a deep respect for the land from which they produce wholesome organic grains that they themselves mill.
“Nitty Gritty Grain Company of Vermont is a small family-owned certified organic farming operation committed to producing delicious, wholesome, locally-grown products. Our aim is to participate in the cycle of sustainability both nutritionally and environmentally by growing certified organic grains. We are reaping the bounty of what the earth has to give and returning the gift by preserving the land for future generations.
Here at the Nitty Gritty Grain family our aim is to provide an enjoyable, sustainable, healthy food source. We offer you the knowledge of where your food comes from so you can rest assured it is truly healthy and wholesome. We hope you take great satisfaction in eating and using our products. Enjoy the taste that dedication, passion, and effort can make.”
Blends which we are proud to carry include:
