Come visit Breadtree's oldest orchard in bloom right on the heels of the summer solstice!

If you've ever wanted to see what a working chestnut orchard looks like, come on out! Breadtree Farms' trees that were planted at ASA conserved Otter Creek Farm are coming into their 6th leaf this year, and they're expecting their first significant crop in the fall. The field the trees were planted in was corn just 6 years ago, and it's undergone a pretty amazing transformation.

They'll start with a tour of the orchard and answer all your chestnut and tree crops questions, then head down the hill for lunch and conversation.

All ages welcome! We will have a couple different transportation options for folks with limited mobility.

At lunch, Breadtree Farms will be slinging burgers from Otter Creek's very own herd — cows that grazed beside our trees and nourished them & the soil. There will also be a vegetarian option available. There are lunch tickets and no-cost tickets for anyone who wants to bring their own lunch. Kids under 5 eat free! BYOB for those so inclined.

An email with more details and parking instructions will be sent to registered attendees closer to the date. Contact bug@breadtreefarms.com if you have any questions.

This event is made possible with support by the Robert H. Wentworth Foundation.
