Local grains

Learn all about the re-emergence of a human-scale local grain economy right here in the Adirondacks. Join baker, farmer, and miller Dan Rivera from Triple Green Jade Farm as he shares recipes and techniques for getting more local whole grains onto your table. Recipes for cookies, buns, galettes, and even pasta will be covered.

About The Chef:

Dan Rivera was born in the Bronx and grew up in Lake Carmel surrounded by a family heritage of Italian and Puerto Rican food. He was introduced to amazing cuisine based on simple, fresh ingredients early in life.

Dan and his wife Kimmy started Triple Green Jade Farm from scratch in the fertile and bucolic Champlain Valley of the Adirondacks. They built a wood-fired bread oven, purchased a stone mill to mill their own flour, started a grass-based livestock operation, and most crucially, built a loyal following of “bread heads and foodies” at the farmers’ market. Dan and Kimmy are now exploring agritourism, remaining true to their vision of creating an ecological farmstead which provides local food that mirrors the wild and natural beauty of the Adirondacks.
