The Colorado Grain Chain is a newly forming membership organization comprised of family-owned and -operated businesses that produce grain and grain products from heritage, ancient and locally-adapted grain and corn. Founding members are farmers, millers, bakers, brewers, distillers and chefs. The Grain Chain is devoted to promoting member businesses and raising awareness and demand for their products throughout Colorado.

 To help understand the markets for these grains and corn, the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs (UCCS) College of Business is conducting this survey to understand current industry trends and preferences in the procurement of organic small grains, underutilized grains, and corn. As a baker/ brewer/distiller/chef, you were chosen for your expertise.

We will ensure that the information collected on this survey is confidential and anonymous and the individual responses are stored at UCCS. After we analyze the survey results, we will post the aggregated results on the Colorado Grain Chain website.
