An event for Almond, Walnut, Tree Fruit & Wine Grape Growers,
The Tree & Vine Expo is held every year at the Stanislaus Fairgrounds, in Turlock, California, the heart of North Valley wine grape & tree nut country and is a place where Growers and PCAs gather to learn about the status of the industry, earn PCA credits, and visit with exhibitors. It is produced in cooperation with the North Valley wine and nut industries. There are nearly 6,000 grape & tree nut growers and PCAs in this area. This event along with other Malcolm Media Ag Expos has generated nearly $150,000 in scholarship endowments for the viticulture programs at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, Fresno State, Santa Rosa Junior College and UC Davis.
Hosted at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds, in Turlock, CA, the event will begin with free coffee and breakfast at 7:00 AM and conclude after the lunch seminars at 2:00 PM. Be sure to come on time to take advantage of the continuing education credits for qualified applicators and private applicators.
“The seminars are very helpful and informative. This is the place to go to learn about how to improve orchard management practices. I also enjoy the great food Malcolm Media provides and looking at the new equipment and technology available.”
“I enjoy coming here each year, listening to the seminars and seeing friends in the industry. I always leave with much useful information.”
"We are here at the Tree & Vine Expo because we like to reach out to our customers. So far today we have received quite a few leads and it's been a great experience for us"
"I come every year to the Tree & Vine Expo; I think it is a great show. They put on a lot of great exhibits and equipment for us to look at and evaluate. They put on a good seminars that help us get our continuing education credits, and we enjoy the time to gather and visit with other growers."
Grape grower, Patti Quaschnick & Walnut grower, Kimberly Walsh traveled from the Lodi area to attend the Tree & Vine Expo. They, along with their friends and neighbors, have been attending the Expo for a number of years. “We look forward to coming every year,” said Quaschnick. “I like talking with the vendors and hearing all the speakers.” She went on to say that events like this are a great way for growers to connect and hear information about their industry. Walsh agreed and said that the seminars are always helpful. “I enjoy the overall event,” said Walsh. “Breakout sessions geared toward specific topics would also be helpful as it's really nice to listen to someone who is talking about your specific crop area.” She noted the “State of the Walnut Industry,” presentation was very beneficial. “I left with much useful information,” said Walsh. "And I look forward to coming again next year.”
