The Michigan chestnut industry has been growing steadily over the last decade, with a substantial amount of interest from new growers.

In response, Michigan State University Extension will hold a one-day workshop to introduce attendees to the opportunities and challenges of commercial chestnut production. The workshop will cover:

  • history of the industry in Michigan
  • economic analysis of production
  • orchard establishment and design
  • pest management
  • harvesting
  • marketing
  • storage

The Chestnut Orchard Establishment Workshop will be held April 20 from 10:00 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Clarksville Research Center in Clarksville, Michigan. The cost is $50, which includes lunch and support materials. To register, visit https://events.anr.msu.edu/chestnutworkshop2017/

Those attending are encouraged to visit www.chestnuts.msu.edu before the event for a primer on chestnut production. The ‘Production Considerations’ section may be particularly helpful.
