Grainworks knows great food springs from the good seeds sown in harmony with nature. It all begins with the best seed, carefully tended and harvested. If it can’t be grown here on the prairies, they have searched far and wide for organic farmers and suppliers in other climate and soil zones that share their passion for great food and a healthy earth.
