UW-Madison, Division of Extension, is hosting the 2nd Annual Wisconsin Hazelnut Week to feature all that is happening with hazelnuts in Wisconsin. “Things are starting to move quickly with this emerging new crop here in Wisconsin,” says Jason Fischbach, UW-Extension Emerging Crops Specialist, “So we wanted to provide opportunities for existing and aspiring growers to see what’s happening and decide whether hazelnuts is something they want to pursue.” Hazelnut Week 2023 includes four field days and the popular Hazelnuts 101 webinar. The events are free and open to the public, but registration is required. For all the information and to register go to: https://www.midwesthazelnuts.org/coming-events.html
