Barley Nutritional Value
In May 2006 the US Food and Drug Administration authorized use of a health claim for the role of beta-glucan soluble fiber from barley in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. The ruling was based on scientific evidence from clinical trials reporting significantly lower serum total and LDL cholesterol levels in people who consumed whole grain barley products that replaced wheat and rice ingredients. Barley is high in fiber and known to help reduce risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Tidbits of History
In the Palouse’s sensual hills, Steptoe Butte offers a stunning view of farmlands, the jagged Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho, and the distant Blue Mountains of Southeast Washington. With an elevation total elevation of 3612 feet, the road to the summit rises 1600 feet in 4 1/2 miles. It spirals up, making three complete 360-degree loops.
Steptoe Butte is listed as a National Nat
ural Landmark because of its geological importance. It is a remnant of ancient rock rising through layers of much younger basalt.

In 1877, James A. Davis operated a roadhouse at the foot of Steptoe Butte. He hosted parties and dances that drew people from all over the countryside. This lasted until 1883 when the railroads became plentiful in the Palouse and the stage traffic ended. Davis, hoping to bring business, built a grand hotel on the top of the Butte in 1888. It was two stories high and crowned with a rooftop balcony for site seeing. Davis died in 1898 without ever seeing his hotel prosper. The empty hotel burned 15 years later.

The area is now preserved as a park through the generosity of Virgil McCroskey. He donated two land parcels to the state in 1945 and 1946, providing that they are used solely as a public park forever.
