Sprouting Peas!

Our supply of locally grown Barley has just dried up, so we are switching to other types of feed choices for sprouting. The first shipment is.. peas! Starting with a couple of tons . dried field peas, organically grown.

Each of these barrels has a two 50 lb bags of dried peas soaking in water... a tad too much! Peas expand greatly when rehydrated!  Next batch will be only one bag per barrel.

Within 3 to 4 days these should have nice sprouts on them, ready to be used for a highly nutritious meal for hogs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, and even goats!

  1. Horray for dried whole peas! As a food for humans, I learned in the 1970s that for a few pennies per pound, I could have fresh green food year around. Merely soaking overnight produced a tasty live food for the next day! Later trials, however, were disappointing, as the pea sprouts tasted chalky. DOES ANYONE HAVE IDEAS ABOUT WHAT KIND OF PEAS FOR ME TO SPROUT? Landline 541-482-8863 (Afternoons and Evenings) Thanks, Kindler Stout, Ashland, Oregon
