Cornell University extension’s Lake Ontario Fruit Team is organizing its first-ever summer tour for Spanish-speaking employees. It will be held in Orleans Country the afternoon of Saturday, August 1.

At each of five tour stops, participants will be hosted by a Spanish-speaking owner or manager. “The entire cycle of apple production will be discussed during the tour,” according to Mario Miranda Sazo, the member of the fruit team who specializes in cultural practices.

The tour will start at Kast Farms, Albion, New York, then move to nearby Lamont Fruit Farm and then to Perez Farms at Waterport.

The tour is free but pre-registration is required. Contact Kim Hazel at
