Attendees at the International Fruit Tree Association’s 60th annual conference and study tour crisscrossed much of north central Washington in February, weathering snow, freezing rain, fog and moments of sun-kissed vistas.
In the process, they settled into their tour bus seats, wiped moisture from the windows and craned to see new orchard trellises and vineyards dotting the route from Brewster to Mattawa.

Two tour buses of about 50 people were given a special tour of McDougall and Sons’ new packing facility in East Wenatchee highlighting their food safety-first plant. The second bus load left the facility with their own bit of IFTA history, after briefly being stranded. (TJ Mullinax/Good Fruit Grower)
