FALLBROOK — Information about growing macadamia nuts in California will be presented at the California Macadamia Society and the Gold Crown Macadamia Association’s Field Day on Saturday, September 23, from 8:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Russell Family Farms, 205 Calle Linda, Fallbrook. The farm has 200+ producing macadamia trees, persimmons, avocados, lemons, limes, chestnuts, one pecan plus a few other items. The meeting will include a tour of the growing grounds as well as a tour of the Russell’s “Nut House.”

This is an opportunity for all that are interested to learn about growing macadamia nuts in California. In addition to the commercial growers, macadamias make excellent back yard trees, are beautiful as landscaping, and can be grown in tubs on your patio. The macadamia is native to Australia and has been grown in California continuously since 1879.

Come join the California Macadamia Society & the Gold Crown Macadamia Association for a day of fun, food, and information. We will feed your brain with information about the macadamia, your body with a continental breakfast and steak lunch, and your soul with the beauty of the farm.

Cost is $15 per person with pre-registration, $20 at the event. That includes breakfast and lunch. Contact: Jim Russell, (760) 728-8081 or e-mail
