Each year, the
NSFGA holds an annual summer orchard tour. The tour
is an opportunity for the fruit growing community to visit
other farms and meet with other growers from near and far.
Local growers welcome others in the fruit industry to their
farms to display some aspect of their operation.
along the tour view such things as planting systems, rootstock
and variety trials, pest management technologies, crop load
management techniques and orchard machinery.
The tour is generally
held on the Tuesday of the first full week of August.
The tour alternates between the western half and the eastern
half of the Annapolis Valley.
A long standing
tradition started in 1925, the tour is looked forward to each year.
