Our annual fruit festival is back on the menu and we invite you to join us:
Celebrate fruit, enjoy live music, and
explore ways to expand your palette for unique small fruits in Wisconsin. Learn about sustainable fruit production at Hilltop, sample ways to use, prepare, grow, and market small fruits such as currants, saskatoons, honeyberry, and elderberry. Highlights include: an orchard tour, tastings and tips for using currants and other local fruits from area chefs, a pie contest, live music, and the opportunity to weave and stitch food stories with area artists.
You will leave the day with resources on growing these fruits, ideas for use/preparation, and ways you
can help grow Wisconsin's local food/fruit system.
Dress for spending time outdoors, rain or shine.
Suggested Contribution $25 -
Includes catered lunch, fruit tastings, resources.
