Winter Meeting/Summer Tour

Thank You For The Record Breaking Annual Nut Growers Society Summer Tour


On behalf of the Nut Growers Society of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia I would like to thank everyone who played a part in making the 2014 Nut Growers Society Summer Tour the largest tour yet! These are exciting times for the hazelnut industry as evidenced by the record attendance at this year’s tour. There is a lot of buzz around our growing industry and it continues to build thanks to all the hard work put in by everyone involved.

A special thank you goes out to the individuals who played a direct role in putting this year’s summer tour on. Northwest Hazelnut Company, George Packing Company, Willamette Egg Farm and OVS were gracious enough to open up their facilities for our use throughout the day. Thank you to our speakers for taking time out of their busy schedules to plan and present thoughtful and relevant topics to share with the industry. All the vendors did an excellent job of providing state of the art equipment to display the future of the industry. We could not have done this all without the support of our sponsors. Of course, none of this would be possible without the growers who drive this industry. We are excited about what the future has to hold!

Thank You,

Joan Firestone

President of the Nut Growers Society
