Oct. 21 field day on organic vegetable flavor

The last in a series of UW-Madison field days focused on the flavor of organic vegetables will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 21 from 3-5 pm at the West Madison Agricultural Research Station. (Please note that an earlier announcement gave the wrong date for this event. It takes place on Oct. 21—NOT Oct. 24.)

At the Oct. 21 event, farmers, chefs and the general public are invited to tour trial plots and join in a taste test of potatoes, carrots, winter squash and onion varieties. The data collected this research project will be analyzed and shared with the public through websites, publications and presentations.

The West Madison Agricultural Research Station is located at 8502 Mineral
Point Rd., about ½ mile west of the Beltline (U.S. 12&14).
