Taking care of an apple orchard is more than just planting trees. Learn more about the big picture when it comes to orchard management and stewardship. This class will touch on mechanical, biological, and some chemical methods of caring for your orchard.

Al Yelvington is a fairly recent transplant to the area after retiring from 33 years in the Coast Guard. Al started a cider orchard (Happy Dog Farm) outside of Russell, PA to provide juice specifically for hard cider makers. He is in his second year in the Virginia Tech Online Masters in Agriculture and Life Sciences (OMALS) focusing on pest and weed management. Happy Dog Farm includes a community cider mill that is registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
