Nut Growers Society of OR, WA & BC
Share |

The Nut Growers Society  (NGS)  is a membership organization made up of growers and other people interested in the hazelnut industry.  The governing board is made up of five growers plus an ex-officio Extension Agents and industry staff.  This group is the information arm of the industry, providing feedback to growers from both the Hazelnut Marketing Board (HMB) and the Oregon Hazelnut Commission (OHC).

This is achieved in various ways. NGS sends four newsletters per year. They hold a summer tour of orchards with educational speakers, a BBQ and trade show.  An annual winter meeting is held in Corvallis at OSU. In addition, NGS works cooperatively with OSU Extension to provide smaller educational meetings on many grower topics. NGS also publishes an annual Growers Handbook or “Proceedings” of the year’s events that includes a roster of growers and industry vendors.  Whether you are a seasoned multi-generational grower or a potential grower, the membership of $100 is of great value.

The society activities provide opportunity for growers to gather and discuss what does and what does not work in the orchard.  This interaction is paramount to the success of the industry.
