Organic Hazelnuts Farm Tour

Farm tour participants gather around a speaker, with rows of hazelnut trees in background

In August of 2018 NCAP partnered with the Oregon Organic Hazelnut Cooperative to host the 2nd Annual Organic Hazelnuts Summer Farm Tour. Eighty attendees observed different orchard practices at two mid-valley farms and learned from the farm hosts, Oregon State University 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!

Thank you to USDA Risk Management Agency for funding this event.
