This Thursday, August 25 at 7pm, join us for a free, awesome event with Red Jacket Orchards

All the details! 

Joe and Emily Nicholson, Sr. purchased Red Jacket Orchards in Geneva, NY in 1958. Now run by the second and third generation, the Nicholson family is committed to continuing Joe and Emily's tradition of delivering high quality products and excellent customer service, and strive to build a company that provides consumers with healthy, wholesome flavorful farm fresh products. We believe if you do something, do it properly, and with integrity...whether at Red Jacket Orchards, or in your own backyard!

In Orcharding 101 for City Dwellers, Red Jacket Orchards VP of Farm Operations, Mike Biltonen, will discuss the ins and outs of starting your own backyard or rooftop orchard right here in New York City. From the fundamentals like pest management, fertility, basic physiology, and establishment to more esoteric topics like propagation (making your own trees), crop and variety selection, and permaculture, Mike will cover it all. Please bring your dreams and desires (as well as questions and quandaries) for what you'd like to achieve with your very own fruit trees.

This class will take place at the Brainery, 515 Court Street in Brooklyn. Give us a heads up at if you're planning on attending!
