All breweries generate waste and a majority of that waste is spent grains. Most brewers find a local farms who then use the grain as animal feed. What do you do with organic spent grains? Find an organic farm of course.
We took a drive up to the Grant Family Farm outside Wellington to discuss the possibility of them taking our spent grain. The Grant Family Farm is the first farm certified organic in the state of Colorado and has been farming organically for more than 35 years. Everyone there was helpful with our questions about the organic certification process and were very interested in the prospect of being able to supplement their organic feed with organic spent grain.
This seems like it will be a win-win situation for everyone.
