Apple and Pear Harvest Field Day moved up two weeks due to weather

Sep 6th, 2016 | Category: News

MOUNT VERNON – The annual Apple and Pear Harvest Field Day, presented by the Western Washington Fruit Research Foundation at WSU Washington Research and Extension Center in Mount Vernon, has been moved up to Saturday, Sept. 24. The event was originally slated for Oct. 8, but was moved due to the warm weather and fruit ripening early. Talks on cider, followed by harvesting of apples and pears will be held 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The WWFRF Fruit Display Garden, at 16650 State Route 536, Mount Vernon, contains one of the largest and most varied collections of antique apple trees in western Washington. This event is free to members of WWFRF; non-members pay $15 single or $30 family. See www.nwfruit.org for more information.
