Guess what……..Taylor, Henry and I are off to Western, Massachusetts to learn a bit more about apples.
We have learned a lot about organic apples from the best. John Bemis (my father-in-law).
However, this weekend, Taylor and I are going to our very first apple conference where we will learn a variety of things. Everything from new growing techniques, diseases, pests, sprays, and even making your own hard cider. We are hoping to learn a lot!
As you all know, apples are a big part of Hutchins Farm, and we put in a lot of hard work into the orchards. It will be great to learn a bit more about apples and the future of growing them in a sustainable way. We are excited to say the least.
Henry is coming along because apples are his favorite fruit. (not because we couldn’t find a dog sitter!)
Be back on Sunday with a new dinner recipe and hopefully a fun recap of the weekend!
