Burnt Ridge Nursery and Orchards Farm Tours 2023
Join us for a public Farm and Nursery Tour, with our founder Michael Dolan leading the way as we share with you our 20 acres of organic fruits and nuts, with a special focus on crops that ripen in the summer. Limit of 30 guests will be strictly enforced due to parking limitations; please carpool if you can. If you are purchasing a family ticket, please tell us the total number of family members attending in the note section of your order form. Out of courtesy to our farm dog, Ginger, please leave your furry friends, except service animals, at home or in your vehicle when you come to the tour.
There are 2 tour times scheduled/day. All of the event will be outside.
Be sure to check out our weekly summer class series, too! These are shorter presentations on specific topics, with more time for in-depth questions and answers. Information, schedule, and tickets here.

10:00am or 1:30pm: TOURING! The fun starts with a tour of our sloping farm site on our rugged trails - not easy access for strollers or those with limited mobility. We will be viewing all of our crop plants - hazelnuts, chestnuts, kiwis, mulberries, blueberries, figs and more. Cultivation and propagation techniques will be discussed, as well as the specific characteristics of the varieties that do well here in the Pacific Northwest.
11:00am or 2:30pm: EATING! We will have a sampling of the fruits at the peak of their ripeness, with a focus on flavor, texture and nutrition. Chef John Camenzind will provide a sample plate that will tickle your taste buds with quick and easy treats.
11:30am or 3:00pm: LEARNING! Michael will answer questions about any other crops that caught your eye during the tour.
Live potted plants, certified organic produce, preserved foods, wine and hard cider will be available to purchase and take home as the event winds to a close.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE !
