Hazelnut Agroforestry Field Tour

Are you excited about the possibility of growing climate resilient tree crops for our local food system?  Do you have dreams of a perennial, climate resilient, dynamic agroforestry farm, but are struggling to take the steps to put your aspirations into action?

Join Nutwood Farm and NOFA/Mass to explore a small commercial hazelnut orchard and learn what it takes to transition land to tree crops, from developing a site plan, testing your soil, clearing land, selecting species of plants and animals, to working with mistakes and thinking ahead. They’ll walk us through how they got started and where they’re headed next, including embarking on investing in processing infrastructure and developing value-added food products as well as other marketable agroforestry products.

Throughout the day we will:

  • Tour the farm to see hazelnut hedgerows, earthworks, and livestock
  • Ask critical and inspiring implementation questions
  • Engage in rich discussion about agroforestry development in the Northeast
  • Review the various entities and organizations that have supported this work
  • Meet and mingle with others who might also be in your shoes!
