Click to go to summer convention detail page.

On Thursday, August 15, everyone will drive to the “elk farm” to learn about value-added products such as wreaths and antler dog bones and also to see the elk. A short drive from there will get you to the “tree farm” to learn about giving the customer what they want, rotation techniques, bough harvesting, the gift shop, equipment used, tree movement/accountability/sales area, and to take a walk through the fields. You may also have individual help from Holly setting up social media accounts.

On Friday, we will be at the Walworth County Fairgrounds, https://www.walworthcountyfair.com/
for seminars, trade show, & WI tree contest. A campground is available - go to end of hotel list. (There is also a rodeo on the grounds that evening.)
