Valley and invites
all fruit producers to join!
August 6-7th, 2012

Valley is home to a number of successful organic fruit operations and
we will be visiting at least five of them to see a range of organic
management techniques in practice. The focus will be on
apples, high bush blueberries and grapes. We are also planning for a
stop at the Kentville Research Centre to learn about the latest in
organic fruit research.

discussion on other topics such as grading, storage, and marketing.

tour, so don’t delay your registration! We’re predicting a mix of
long-time organic, transitional, and new fruit producers, so the
networking potential should be great in addition to the excellent
training opportunity! Please note that this tour is geared to NB
