Default Need to Wash Grain Straight from the Field?

Has anyone ever used grains straight from the field to their home?

If so, did you wash these grains? I am concerned about pesticides.

Brewed in 2014: Rye IPA, Honey Sage Ale, Belgian Golden Strong, California Common, Bavarian Style Lager, Weizen, Coffee Stout, Gruit, Gale Ale, Isle of Skye Golden clone, Oktoberfest, Rauchbier, Alpha Male IPA & Chocolate Pepper Stout.

There's a lot more to it than that. You'll need to malt them as well.

You could use my grain as I use no pesticide but making a blanket statement would be folly. I'd suggest you wash them just to be sure or by from an organic farm.
