Where We Source.

Committed to Growing Maine's Grain Economy

At Blue Ox Malthouse, we are committed to helping Maine growers increase their grain growing capacity and produce the best quality barley possible. We take great pride in our dedication to supporting these farms as a mid-size market and through partnering with organizations like the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, Maine Grain Alliance, MOFGA, and many others to increase knowledge, capacity, and infrastructure for small grains.
