Hello Nut Growers!
The New York Nut Growers Association will hold its fall meeting on Saturday, October 5, from 8:30 to 3:00. The morning session, held at the home of Wayne Myers, 1071 Michigan Hollow Rd, Spencer, NY, will feature presentations on growing hickory nuts; research into the NYNGA’s English walnut breeding program; a report on a young orchard of chestnut and hazelnut; and the use of biochar to sequester carbon and enhance nut production. Following lunch and a brief NYNGA business meeting, we will visit two farms: Brian Caldwell, 180 Walding Lane, West Danby, NY, to learn about his mature chestnut and hazelnut orchard, organic apples, persimmons, a large Illinois Everbearing mulberry, and black walnuts; and Akiva Silver, Twisted Tree Farm and Nursery, 279 Washburn Rd, Spencer, NY , to tour his nut and fruit trees, berry buses, and useful perennials.
