Practical riddle applications

You are on one side of a moderately wide river with a fox, a duck, a bag of grain, and a boat that is only big enough for you and one other item to cross the river at a time.

You want to cross the river with all three items. However, you know that if you leave the fox and the duck together unattended, the fox will eat the duck; and if you leave the duck and the grain together unattended, the duck will eat the grain.

How can you cross the river with all of your items intact?
