Steve talked to the group about operations and issues at Pan American Blueberry Growers. Nice blueberry themed gift baskets were given to each participant.
Maynard, Kim and family talked about why they are organic and provided everyone the opportunity to see their robots milking the cows.
Josh Hyatt talked with tour members about the niche market they have developed working with restaurants. They provided the greens and tomatoes for our salad.
The final stop was dinner prepared entirely from products of Lewis County farms. All enjoyed Shepard's Pie, multiple vegetables, salad, Deviled Quail Eggs, and 3 Blueberry desserts. Everyone enjoyed the farm style meal with good company and went home with gifts of jellies
