Field Peas

With another soggy week gone by and more wet days ahead, thought it's appropriate to post about another one of our dry-farmed grains. We seeded about 10 acres of field peas, and some of the pea plants are just starting to poke through the sea of winter vetch. Rich in protein and starch, we grind and mix the peas in with other organic grains for the hogs.
