The 1st Annual WI Hazelnut Week is next week, Aug 15-20. As part of the week long event, we are hosting the Northern WI Hazelnut Field Day on Saturday, August 20 here in the Chequamegon Bay. The field day starts at 8AM at the Bayfield Business Park (formerly the Ashland Ag Research Station) where we’ll tour the brand new Bayfield Go-First Farm. This will be a chance to see a brand new hazelnut planting (established October 2021) and learn what it takes to get started. We’ll then caravan to Bayfield and visit the oldest hazelnut planting in northern Wisconsin at Blue Ox Cidery. After that, we’ll head over to Hauser’s Superior View Farm and tour their nursery where hazelnut plants are produced. Here’s the rough schedule:
8AM – Bayfield Go-First Farm (Ashland Ag Station)
10AM – UMHDI Research Plantings (Blue Ox Cidery)
11AM – Hazelnut Nursery Production (Hauser's Superior View Farm)
