Oregon Organic Hazelnut Cooperative hosted its 3rd Annual Summer Hazelnut Tour on August 14, 2019. We had another good turnout of over 80 attendees to learn from two experienced organic hazelnut orchards. The morning session was hosted by Lori & Jerry Stole of SkyDance Farm, Sherwood who presented their 2 year old Yamhill trees being started organically. The lunch featured speakers: Tom Lively, Organically Grown, Charlie Tilt, Hummingbird Wholesale, Kate Cambell, Coconut Bliss, Patricia Wiskow, Wildtime Foods, and Heman Bhojwani, Earthly Gourmet. The afternoon session was hosted by Mary & David Stehman of Meridian Orchards, Aurora, OR. They showed new Yamhill plantings, mature Barcelona management, and irrigation and pest strategies in new plantings.
Thank you to all who helped to make the 2019 Tour a BIG success!
Hope to see you next year at our Organic Hazelnut Summer Tour!!
