Come join us for a beautiful walk at the farm. This marks the start of tree crops harvesting season where the hazelnuts, apples, pears, grapes are bountiful. We will be doing a hybrid hazelnut harvesting demo too! Come equipped for all weather. The weather at this time of year is usually beautiful, but make sure you have on hand rain gear, sun gear and comfortable waterproof boots. There is a lot to see, so please arrive at this event on time, as we’ll be getting started promptly at 10am. Connect with Karen for more information about this tour and register with the link below.
