LOCALLY GROWN BARLEY, WHEAT, RYE, ETC. A microbrewery is looking for locally grown barley, wheat and rye to use in its products:  “We are in the process of opening our brewery in Goldendale, WA. For the time being, we are looking for local ingredients to use in our beers (malted barley, wheat, rye, etc; fruit and herbs; hops). In the future, we hope to have a small kitchen in our tasting room and would like to feature local cheese, cured meats, pickles, and bread. Once we are up and running this fall, we would also be open to selling beer to restaurants and events in the region (we will be self distributing in Washington).”  If you are interested or have suggestions, contact Rachel Suits of OSU Extension Small Farms programs in the gorge at 541-386-3343 ext 38257 or email
