2021 Illinois State Horticultural Society Presents Summer Field Day


Edwards Apple.JPG

Thursday, June 10 8:30 until after lunch (Itinerary)

Edward’s Apple Orchard West · 8218 Cemetery Rd. Winnebago, IL


Summer Horticulture Day is day of meetings  Illinois Specialty Growers Association. I love taking a break from our summer work to visit another growers farm. There is always something to learn from this experience, even if it is something small, like a new trick for planting pumpkins, different signage to use on the farm, or a new way to package and sell produce, and usually some bigger things as well, such as how to manage Phytophthora in apples from Dr. Mohammad Babadoost. Summer Horticulture Day is also a great time to reconnect with old friends and industry supporters. I have made some of my very closest friends through this field day, and always try to meet new people as well.

About Edwards Apple Orchard West has been owned and operated by the Edwards Family for over 30 years and features 18 different varieties of apples from over 8500 trees,freshly made apple cider, and their famous apple cider donuts. They also have pick-your-own pumpkins & raspberries, and grow autumn mums for fall displays. Activities include wagon rides, a children’s play area, and petting farm with goat walk.
