Craft brewing raw material ingredients featured at forum

        Origin Malts co-founder, Victor Thorne, will present craft brewing trends and supply dynamics of raw material ingredients such as malting barley, at the Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum, Thursday, July 19 from 8-9:30 a.m. at the monthly Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Forum.

        The event is hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation (AIF), 13737 Middleton Pike (SR 582) in Bowling Green.

        Historical externalities have affected the craft brewing industry and have created opportunities for new entrants to solve gaps in the supply chain. Origin Malts, a supply chain agribusiness focused on producing and processing small grains for the food and beverage industry, has been growing and testing Puffin, a two-row winter malting barley with Scottish bloodlines since the winter of 2010-11. Regional brewers are currently testing the locally grown malt.

        Breakfast and informal networking will start at 8 a.m., with the program to follow.

        Walk-ins are welcome, but guests are encouraged to reserve a seat in advance by visiting ciftinnovation.org. The cost is $10 per person for those who RSVP in advance, or $12 per person at the door without RSVP (cash or check) which includes breakfast and networking opportunities.

        The Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum is an educational networking opportunity to provide information on current issues, trends and programs available to the agricultural community and those who support its advancement.

The ODA announced approval for local sponsors to purchase agricultural easements on 51 family farms representing 6,107 acres in 22 counties.  

Local sponsoring organizations, which include land trusts, counties and local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, receive funding from the Clean Ohio Fund to manage the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program. The easement ensures farms remain permanently in agricultural production. The program supports the state’s largest industry, food and agriculture.
