Jim Riddle and Joyce Ford will lead us on a tour of Blue Fruit Farm. The field day will focus on their unusual fruits, including 5 varieties of black currants, 8 varieties of honeyberries, 5 types of plums, and numerous blueberry varieties. We’ll discuss the farm’s rainwater collection; solar-powered irrigation system; deer fencing; and bird netting. Jim Riddle, farm co-owner and chair of the Organic Farmers Association steering committee, will lead a conversation about national organic policy issues. Includes lunch from Blue Heron Coffeehouse.
