Supporting Local Agriculture
At Solstice Malt, supporting local agriculture is one of our core values. We take pride in our commitment to working with local farmers and sourcing the highest quality grains from the beautiful landscapes of Utah.
In collaboration with Utah State University, we have also been researching the cultivation of more malting barley in Utah. Growing malting barley offers potential advantages over alfalfa or corn, particularly in Utah's climate. It often requires less water and fertilizer, making it a more sustainable option for our local farmers.
However, our commitment to local agriculture doesn't end with sourcing our grains. The protein-rich rootlets, that are removed during the malting process, are available as a nutritious feed for livestock, further strengthening our ties to the farming community and creating a full-circle connection between Solstice Malt and local agriculture.
We are always eager to forge new partnerships with farmers who are interested in working with us or learning more about growing malting barley in the future. If you are a farmer curious about the benefits of cultivating malting barley or would like to collaborate with Solstice Malt, please don't hesitate to contact us.
