Grass Valley Grains is a one-man farming and milling operation with occasional help from friends, volunteers, and some paid help. I grow grain crops using organic methods and materials and mill some into flour or meal in my own stone mill. Currently everything is grown on a fifth-generation farm in Wheatland, California where there is abundant flat land. The flour mill is in Grass Valley.

My name is Reed Hamilton, and my wife Judy and I have lived in Grass Valley for 25 years and are the parents of two adult sons who grew up here. I have been in business here for all of that time, though I returned to farming just two years ago. We have a wide circle of friends here and a strong commitment to our community.

I began Grass Valley Grains in 2007 as a way to provide a source of wholesome, locally grown grain and grain products to local consumers. I chose to grow grains because I grew up on a grain farm and because I love bread, which seems such an elemental food. I am committed to growing food in a way that builds the soil and produces nutritious crops without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. I want to educate people about the properties of what they eat and the many grain crops that are available besides wheat. I want my customers to be a community of friends who share an understanding of what it takes to produce this food.
