Imagine a carefree, ornamental tree with a fruit filled with creamy custard flavors of banana, mango, pineapple, and hints of vanilla. Our most “exotic native” is the largest fruit grown in America, yet it is little known to most Americans. We are changing that with our first annual Paw Paw Festival. We will have fresh select paw paw’s to taste, paw paw trees for sale, and lots of good info on growing them!
Join us September 17th, 2016 12-5 p.m. to celebrate our largest native American fruit with tastings, ice cream making, orchard tours & fall fun for everyone. All ages welcome. *We have added a bonus hour to the Festival and are offering tours of our circular strawbale home to the first 40 folks to come.. **Music by https://soundcloud.com/claude-n-erica
