Berry Field Day

Join the Wisconsin Berry Growers Association on 

Wednesday, August 31st for a 

Strawberry & Other Berry/Fruit Crops Field Day at

Carandale Fruit Farm - 1046 Tipperary Road, Oregon,  WI  53575

 

The focus of the field day will be on strawberries, but the tour and discussion will include other berries and fruits as possible companion crops.  The farm tour portion of the morning has been given 2 hours so we can effectively address both objectives.  To get the most out of the farm tour and discussions, the hosts suggests attendees review both the farm website (www.carandalefarm.com) and the uncommon fruit website hosted by UW-Madison (www.uncommonfruit.cias.wisc.edu).
