You could grow hulless oats.  Bountiful gardens sells a hulless variety
(online: bountifulgardens.org), and also hulless barley.  I've grown small
amounts of both in an urban garden, just because I wanted to try them, and
they are in fact hulless.  There's still a light chaff that needs separating,
as I recall, but no hull.

Barley has got to be one of the most gorgeous grain plants I've ever seen -
especially sparkling with dew.
