Before and after farro photos
A recent post on this blog examined the Black Cat Farm grain program. We toured the farro field in March and July. Eric and the Black Cat Farm crew planted farro in the late fall. By March, it strongly resembled crab grass. In July, the farro was nearly ready to harvest and looked like a picture-perfect image of any wheat-related crop.
Following are a few before (March) and after (July) photos of the farro.
