The TN Fruit and Vegetable Association would like to invite you to come out and network with fellow growers while learning about topics that you can take home and apply to your own farm! Please mark your calendars for the last two TFVA Twilight Tours this year, which both take us to West TN.
The September will be at Falcon Ridge Farm in Toone, TN on September 27 from 4-6 PM CST. Come and hear about fruit production from Dr. Dave Lockwood, potential fruit diseases from Dr. Zach Hansen and hear from the growers, Ray and Bart Gilmer, themselves!
The final and October tour will be at Green Acres Farm in Milan, TN on October 16 from 4-6 PM CST. We will talk all about pumpkins! Highlighting a variety trial we did on the farm, as well as hearing from Dr. Zach Hansen on pumpkin diseases to watch out for. Grower Denton Clay Parkins will also share with us how the pumpkin business has evolved over the years.
