Small Fruits for Small Farms

An Introduction to Best Practices for Small Berry Fruit Production

Oswego County is home to many small berry farms that due to size and scale, may not always have access to the latest production practices. This workshop is targeting our small berry producers, part-time growers, and beginning farmers looking to learn best management practices. The fruits that will be covered will be traditional berry crops like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Some of the information that will be covered includes: 1) site & plant selection, 2) pruning, 3) weed control, 4) fertility management, and 5) labor-saving techniques.

Guest speaker will be Anya Osatuke, a Small Fruits Specialist through Cornell Cooperative Extension Harvest NY. The workshop will entail three on-farm visits, field walks, and attendees will also have opportunity to ask questions. 

Registration is required to attend. Maximum registration is 40 attendees. Once registered online, you will receive a follow up email that provides the time and locations for all three farms that will be visited during the workshop. These farms are managed by part-time growers and are within a few minutes of each other just outside the village of Pulaski.
