Tyfu Cymru Workshops & Events
Pick Your Own Workshop
A joint pumpkin/soft fruit workshop is going to be held at Bellis Brothers Farm, Wrexham (https://www.bellisbrothers.co.uk/) on the 31st July. This will be an excellent opportunity to see an active pick your own business in the main period of summer trading. The workshop will be split into two sessions: in the morning we will focus on soft fruit production and the afternoon we will focus on pumpkin. You are welcome to attend both or either session depending on what is relevant to your business. Both sessions will include a crop walk led by Chris Creed and the host grower, but we will also cover how PYO sales of both pumpkin and soft fruit are managed at Bellis.
Top Fruit Network Propagation Workshop
The first Tyfu Cymru Top Fruit Network workshop is going to be held at the Frank P Matthews Ltd. propagation nursery, Worcestershire (www.frankpmatthews.com). The nursery grows over 200 different varieties of apple for commercial orchard production and cider making, alongside other fruit and ornamental trees. The workshop will be specifically targeted towards top fruit production in Wales, addressing the unique combination of challenges and opportunities that growers in Wales will encounter, and will be relevant to both new and existing top fruit growers in Wales.
