Practical Farmers of Iowa: Managing an Organic Apple Orchard
August 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
As part of their 2019 Field Day series, join Practical Farmers of Iowa in learning all about the Wills Family Orchard!
For information about organically managing apple trees – or an orchard of them – Maury is one of Iowa’s best sources of knowledge. Maury will discuss the opportunities and challenges of growing organic apples, and on a smaller scale, peaches. Tour the apple handling facility, commercial kitchen and farm store. In addition to production information, the Wills will share how they slowly built their farm, and how their children fit into the operation.
