For the past seven years, Dawn and Edmund Rek have run a small business Evelyn’s Crackers, dedicated to using only whole local organic grains. They specialize in crackers made from stone ground single varietal wheats, such as Red Fife and avoid any white or roller milled flour or imported grains. They believe that in order to participate in the local economy, they must support the local economy and deal directly with producers, paying the price that they ask. They encourage farmers to grow grains as part of their crop rotation and bring heritage grains back to people’s diet.
