2nd Annual Organic Hazelnut Tour
On August 15, 2018 Oregon Organic Hazelnut Cooperative hosted the 2nd annual Organic Hazelnut Tour. We partnered with the Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides to help expand the reach of promotion and organizing for this year’s tour. What a difference! Eighty attendees observed different orchard practices at two mid-valley farms and learned from the farm hosts, OSU Extension, and Oregon Tilth about a range of topics including filbert worm management, cover crops, organic transition, processing needs, irrigation techniques, and whole-farm revenue insurance. Thanks to Don Hatai and the Lackner Family for hosting the morning and afternoon sessions!
We look forward to doing this again in 2019! Thanks to USDA Risk Management Agency for funding this event.
