Grains are members of the grass family that are generally grown for their seeds. Amaranth and quinoa can be found under “Other Seed Crops” as they are not grains, but are a seed crop.

Jim acquired different varieties from all over the place and before he knew it, he had discovered a little-known passion for the diversity in, and history attached to, all these different grains.
