Tasmanian Field Day 9 Aug 2015

The HGA invites you to a Hazelnut Field Day at Glengarry (near Exeter)
WHEN: Sunday 9th August 2pm – 4pm
WHERE: At Tamar Valley Hazelnuts, 43 Turkey Farm Road Glengarry 7275.

To get there … From Launceston, turn onto the Frankford Highway at Exeter and continue until you reach the Glengarry shop just past Glengarry Rd (approx 7 mins drive from Exeter). Turkey Farm Rd is the first left past the shop and Tamary Valley Hazelnuts is the first driveway on the left. Owned and operated by Nathan and Carol Bracken, Tamar Valley Hazelnuts is one of Tasmania’s largest hazelnut orchards, with currently around 4,500 trees planted, and plans for many more. The first part of their orchard – approx 1600 trees – was planted in 2010. Nathan and Carol also operate a hazelnut nursery.

Program
Meet with other hazelnut growers to discuss issues related to the growing of hazelnuts, including:
– Disease awareness and management, including Big Bud Mite and Bacterial Blight
– Hazelnut Biosecurity
– Hazelnut pruning – a chance to share thoughts and methods
Also time to inspect the orchard, and its equipment, including a new nut harvester. And plenty of time for informal discussion with new or potential growers.

Afternoon tea will be provided. HGA Handbook available for purchase.
Cost: HGA members $5 Non-HGA members $25

SA Field Day

I am hosting a farm walk for all South Australian HGA members, plus any of their friends or interested parties, on Sunday 12th July 2015 @ 9.30am at our property (address below).

At this time of year the catkins on the hazelnut trees are prominent, and our TBC flowers should be in bloom, so you can see what everything looks like. We can also do a pruning demonstration for those interested.

We’ll also put on a morning tea for those who brave the July weather.

If you are interested in attending, and for catering purposes, can you please RSVP by Wednesday 8th July 2015 with numbers.

NSW Open Day at Mudgee
after leaf fall and that participants have a go at pruning our trees. The Thompsons will bring their children so
they can learn too, and suggested other families could do similar. If you are bringing secateurs we will need to
sterilise them before the first cut… good biosecurity precaution.
Diary date. Saturday 30 May is the designated date. This advance notice should enable you to pre-book
accommodation in Mudgee, which is hard to get on most weekends. It will be timely to also run through planting
for those planting next winter.
Stay tuned for more details in early 2015.
