STFS online meeting Saturday April 17th 10 AM to noon via zoom featuring Griffin Berger, Sauk Farm Operations Manager, sharing his experience with successful organic commercial fruit production in western Washington

To lessen COVID-19 spread, STFS meeting Saturday Apr 17th 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM is only online. Zoom invite info below.

Mike Ewanciw (email mikewan@aol.com) will lead meeting beginning with short business meeting followed by Griffin Berger, Sauk Farm Operations Manager. Griffin gave an informative in-person presentation to STFS members Jan 2020. Griffin covered so much back then that Saturday’s followup presentation should help those of us suffering memory overload.

Griffin will revisit and expand on organic farming techniques that reduce inputs while improving tree health, fruit quality and yields.  Griffin will share lessons learned from the successes and failures of running his family farm.

Griffin Berger’s background:  Griffin Berger is the Operations Manager at Sauk Farm LLC. Sauk Farm is an organic family farm in Skagit county specializing in the production and processing of apples, peaches, table grapes, and wine grapes. In 2016 Griffin received a bachelors in integrated plant science at Washington State University. Besides over 12 years of experience working with trees and vines on the family farm, Griffin has also worked at orchards in various locations including Pullman, Wenatchee, and Poggio Renatico, Italy.
