Upcoming Farm Walk! Burnt Ridge Nursery and Orchards, Onalaska, WA - September 22, 2014
Burnt Ridge Nursery and Orchards is a family-owned farm, in business since 1980. Owned and operated by Michael and Carolyn Dolan, their 20-acre farm is located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains with a beautiful view of Mount St. Helens. They are a mail order nursery that specializes in unusual and disease resistant trees, vines, and shrubs that produce edible nuts or fruits. Burnt Ridge prides themselves on having a large selection of Northwest native plants, ornamentals, and useful landscape trees. Join us to learn more about the diverse number of fruit and nut species grown at Burnt Ridge and their potential for growth in the Northwest. The walk will cover the many varieties of chestnut and hardy kiwi that the nursery produces using low-input methods.
