Solon, Iowa

This Practical Farmers of Iowa afternoon field day visits Paul Rasch and Sarah Goering at Wilson’s Orchard. Beginning with the cider apples, Paul will discuss his approach to managing these unique varieties in a dwarf system, including the importance of managing to prevent fire blight. After the group caravans to the main orchard location, Paul will lead an orchard walk and further discuss varieties, orchard care, and managing a U-pick operation. The group will then tour the cidery and event center, and have a chance to enjoy samples.
