Opportunities For Sorghum Farmers Beyond Animal Feed

October 7, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A sorghum farmer from Kansas saw the potential of sorghum as a food product several years ago. He started a sorghum milling business to take advantage of the fact that the non-GMO, gluten-free, sustainable ancient grain “fits with nearly every hot new food trend.” Earl Roemer’s Nu-Life Market –growing at an annual rate of 20 to 30 percent – sells wholesale food-grade sorghum that winds up in a broad range of products, from snacks to liquor to pet food that dogs and humans can share. His retail products include an all-purpose sorghum flour and a gluten-free pizza crust. He has also launched a seed business, and hopes to introduce new varieties of sorghum better suited to the high elevations of eastern Colorado.
