Summer is BUSY, fueled by long days and full fields. As the days get a bit shorter and autumn approaches, we invite you to join us at our research farm to celebrate the growing season with a community field day and variety tasting.
Come taste new varieties of organic produce and learn about our latest research in the field. In addition to the variety tasting, local chefs will serve appetizers that showcase the culinary potential of what’s growing in our trials. Our research farm is located at Finnriver Cidery, which will be open for no-host tastings and purchases. The field tour will be from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the variety tasting and chef showcase following from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Date | Monday, September 25th, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Location | OSA’s Research Farm, 124 Center Rd., Chimacum, WA 98325
Cost | Free of charge and open to all
RSVP | We’d encourage you to RSVP, but it isn’t required
