North Carolina Chapter Farm Tour to Muscadine Grape Farm

North Carolina Chapter Farm Tour to Muscadine Grape Farm

On September 19th, 2020, thirteen Active Brothers and an Alumni from the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta traveled (or tuned in via Zoom) to Bladen County for a farm tour of the Barber Family Farm. The Barber Farm (90 acres) is a contract grower to the Duplin Winery. They grow two different varieties of Muscadine grapes, Carlos and Dorine. Brothers got the opportunity to watch the grapes being harvested in season by a grape combine harvester. One box (pictured) holds about 15,000 pounds of grapes. One 18-wheeler truck load of 38 boxes of grapes can weigh 28 to 30 tons. Thank you to Brother Barber, Sonya, George and Luke for letting us visit and giving us such a wonderful and interesting tour!

Small Grains Extension Farm Tour- North Carolina Chapter

Small Grains Extension Farm Tour- North Carolina Chapter

On Thursday April 23rd, several members of the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta attended a pre-recorded virtual field day of NC Small Grains via Zoom. This research station managed by North Carolina State University is located in Salisbury, North Carolina. In our virtual tour, we learned about weed control, fungicides, malting barley and much more. A big thank you goes out to our alumni, Kaitlyn Milstein, who not only brought this experience to our attention but was generous enough to join our Zoom call and answer a few questions about the tour and gave us guidance in our discussion. Additionally, thank you to NC State Extension for providing this wonderful educational resource for students like us.  

If anyone is interested, here is a link to Small Grains Extension’s youtube channel where we accessed the videos:
