Kernza and Silphium

Asked October 10, 2018, 3:26 PM EDT

We have a largish yard, 10 acres, broken into front and back. We would like to plant front with Kernza and back with silphium. We are in Fremont County. We want to explore growing these crops, and enjoy them in our yard. A local cattleman is currently baling our yard for hay - this would be an advantage to him also. Do you have advice on where to find seeds and advice on planting and other growing advice?
