 Hurd Orchards 2016 Agricultural Outreach Programs

This past spring our farm was honored to have received the
Bayer 2016 Produce Innovation Award.
This is a tremendous honor.  We were given this award specifically for the teaching that we do about agriculture
through our programs - our luncheons, classes and tastings. One part of the responsibilities that we
set for ourselves as award recipients is to further this teaching effort in new and creative ways.

This season, in addition to our current programming, we outlined a four part series
 in which we would discuss more in depth issues facing our farming world
hoping to bring our guests ever closer to the fascinating, evolving issues in the production of food.
We are excited about, and committed to, this effort.

Our four special programs are as follows:

Wednesday August 24th - 12:30
Butterfly Garden Luncheon - Linger after Lunch Lecture
‘Farming in a Changing World’

Saturday September 10th -12:30
‘The Cannery - A Living History Lunch and Lecture"
A part of the Orleans County Heritage Festival
