Marketing the Native Understory: Selling Driftless Hazelnuts, Aronia and Mushrooms Direct to Chefs

Date: Jun 27 2013 9:30 am

Location: [unknown]

Posted May 2013

Viroqua, WI

Hazelnuts and aronia are newly emerging, cultivated woody perennial crops in the Upper Midwest, and wild mushrooms are part of a long tradition of foraging in this region. These forest products can help chefs create locally-sourced signature dishes, and can help landowners supplement and diversify their income. This workshop will address the marketing of these crops through panel discussions and a tour of the largest hazelnut planting in Wisconsin.

The registration fee for this event is $10. Space is limited to the first 80 people to register.
