“Mai is a wonderful farmer and has worked tirelessly on behalf of California’s grain growers to help build a strong, diversified, regional food system. She is a state treasure!” Dave Miller, Miller’s Bake House
“California needs more young famers like Mai! She is meticulous in her seed selection and farming practices and it shows in every kernel of grain harvested.” — Nan Kohler, Grist and Toll
“Farmer Mai is one of my all-time favorite farmers doing good work out there today! Her grains consistently bake into the most flavorful, lofty loaves that just seem like they want to come alive in my hands…They certainly carry the flavors of the land itself.
“Mai’s commitment to responsible and “aware” farming practices are unsurpassed, and I can’t wait to start baking with the wheat she’s grown sustainably on her farm. I’m sure that many others will join me in making what she grows an important part of our diet.”— Mark Stambler, Pagnol Bread
