The Maine Grain Alliance is thrilled to announce ....
Kimberley Bell will keynote the 2019 Kneading Conference!
Owner, Baker, Grain Advocate
Small Food Bakery , Nottingham, England
Occupying the kitchen of a former inner city school, Kimberley and the team at Small Food Bakery make breads, pastries preserves and meals from scratch, buying ingredients directly from farmers and selling directly to customers from their production kitchen. Their objective is to demonstrate that small, human scale food manufacturing and direct trade are what's needed to enable transition to a new, more resilient kind of agriculture; one that supports a healthy biosphere while feeding everyone on the planet.

Kimberley is an advocate for cultural change in our food system, calling for the breaking up of supermarket monopolies in favour of the lateral growth of many, diverse solutions delivered by small food businesses. In 2017 she co-founded UK Grain Lab to help strengthen the community of bakers, millers, scientists and farmers working to build a prosperous non commodity grain economy in the UK.

Learn all about Kimberley and her work at the UK Grain Lab on this podcast episode of Farmerama . In the episode we learn about grain populations and heritage grains, innovative projects that connect millers, bakers and farmers and we hear from bakers around the world experimenting with more diverse flours.
