Bob Quinn & Liz Carlisle, Grain By Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, & Healthy Food


When Bob Quinn was a kid, a stranger at a county fair gave him a few kernels of an unusual grain. Years later, it would become the centerpiece of his multi-million dollar heirloom grain company, Kamut International. How Bob went from being a true believer in better farming through chemistry to a leading proponent of organics is the unlikely story of Grain by Grain. Bob Quinn is an organic farmer near Big Sandy, Montana, and a leading green businessman. Liz Carlisle is a Lecturer in the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University.
