WSU's Bread Lab in Mt Vernon is ushering in a renaissance of grain. Scientists are working alongside bakers to create new wheat varieties using traditional breeding techniques that reflect the climate, soil, and topography, or terroir, of Skagit Valley. As part of the wheat breeding program, the grains are bred and tested for suitability in artisan breads, pastry, and pasta. The Bread Lab is at the core of an emerging local grain economy in western Washington.
