The Kernza® Network

Kernza® Grain: From a wild perennial grass to store shelves

Starting with hobbyist bakers on staff at The Land Institute, Kernza® has been tested in kitchens across the country for over a decade. Innovative chefs, bakers, brewers, distillers, researchers, and growers are using Kernza® in place of or combined with wheat or other grains. If you have a current licensing agreement with The Land Institute (2019 or later) and would like to add your organization to the directory please fill out this form.

Minnesota Native Landscapes

We partnered with the University of Minnesota to do some trial custom cleaning of Kernza in 2018. Last year we cleaned all of the new MN-Clearwater variety (20,000+ pounds) for the U. MNL's mission is to Heal the Earth, and Kernza® fits well within that mission. We have the equipment and expertise from our native seed cleaning operation to handle the various cleaning needs of Kernza®, from seed quality to full de-hulled grain quality.
