Small Fruit Production Workshop for Direct Market

February 14 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The workshop is aimed at training new growers to considering establishing a direct market channel for growing small fruit on the farm such as a “pick-your-own” operation, on farm sales as well as other direct market channels such as the tailgate market. The group will discuss blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries for the region. Specific topics include cultivar selection, site establishment (soil conditions and planting), fertilization, irrigation, pruning, harvesting, and resources for pest control. Workshop includes a lecture followed by a pruning demonstration at a Waightstill Avery’s Farm.
