Burnt Ridge Nursery in Onalaska to host summer farm tours 


Burnt Ridge Nursery in Onalaska will host summer farm tours on July 20 and Aug. 17, with an additional date in September to be announced, according to a news release from the business.  

Burnt Ridge founder and co-owner Michael Dolan will lead each tour of the 20-acre farm and nursery, focusing on diverse fruit and nut crops that can be grown organically in Western Washington, including blueberries, figs, mulberries, kiwis, hazelnuts and chestnuts.  

Sample plates of fresh, seasonal fruits will be provided along with chef-prepared treats to highlight the unique flavors at their peak ripeness.

Certified organic fresh fruit, jam and applesauce, live plants and more will be available for purchase after the tour.  

Dolan and other knowledgeable nursery staff will be available to answer questions from attendees. 

There will be two tours per day at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  

Tickets must be purchased in advance. The cost is $15 each, $35 for a party of three and $40 for a party of four.  

Tickets and more information are available at https://www.burntridgenursery.com/Farm-Tours/products/165/ or by calling 360-985-2873.  

Due to the sloping and rugged ground on this working farm, the tour is not suitable for strollers or those with limited mobility.
