OTFA On-Farm Field Day

August 18, 2012 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Celebrate and learn with us. Join us at Garthe Farms as we learn more about their organic orchard management practices with a focus on apples, pears, sweet and tart cherries, and on-farm research projects that Gene and Kathy are conducting in collaboration with Michigan State University researchers and other area growers. Highlights will include morning discussions on the challenges and opportunities associated with organic pest management, orchard tour, afternoon field walk sessions on orchard fertility, organic disease and insect management, and ways to integrate pastured hogs in the organic orchard.
