The next Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club meeting is Wednesday, May 9th at the Food Enterprise Center, 1201 North Main Street in Viroqua. Networking starts at 5:30, program begins at 6:00 pm.

“Go Nuts! Opportunities with Hickory Nuts” brings Sam Thayer, an organic fruit and nut grower and harvester of wild food products.

He will share practical details of producing hickory oil: tree management, yield, harvest times and methods, post-harvest storage, de-husking, drying, cracking and sorting, pressing, filtering, bottling, and marketing.

The club meets the second Wednesday of every month at the Food Enterprise Center starting at 6:00 p.m. and everyone is welcome to attend.
