UK Grain Lab is an annual gathering of farmers, millers, plant breeders, bakers, cooks, scientists and academics promoting the growing and eating of non commodity grains in the UK. The group was formed in 2017 when Kimberley Bell (Small Food) Josiah Meldrum (Hodmedods) Steven Jacobs (OF&G) and Edward Dicken (Harper Adams) got their heads together to try to imagine ways to support the growing, milling and baking of a more diverse range of cereals in the UK, with a focus on finding alternatives to faceless comodity markets. Through two significant gatherings in November 2017 and 2018 the community that is UK Grain Lab has grown to include many farmers, millers, academics, facilitators, scientists, plant breeders, storytellers & bakers. The group has no formal incorporation, and there are many offshoots that have grown from the initial meetings. The next big meeting is planned to be held in Nottingham in Nov 2020.
