Ancient Grains

Tenera Grains is planting grains & seeds because 

the future of food depends on the progress we make today. 

Why grains matter

Ancient grains, or grains that have been around for thousands of years, deserve special attention for a variety of reasons including...

  • Nutrient Dense — ancient grains are often consumed in their whole grain form so they include the bran, endosperm and germ. This means more fiber, minerals and vitamins!
  • Sustainable — a little goes a long way. To plant one acre of teff, we use 10 pounds of seed and can expect 1000 pounds of grain at the end of the season. Ancient grains also require fewer inputs which is better for soil health. 
  • Good for the economy — when you purchase regionally grown, that money more often stays in your community forming stronger and more resilient communities. 

Ancient grains & seeds we grow

Our 7th generation family farm is pivoting from corn and soybeans to alternative grains and seeds because the greater food landscape is shifting towards a more sustainable and healthy direction and we want to play a role.
