Rt. 1 Box 94 Chapin IL 62628
(NAFEX) is a network of individuals throughout the United States and Canada devoted to the discovery, cultivation and appreciation of superior varieties of fruits and nuts.

Founded in 1967 by a small group of pomological hobbyists, NAFEX has grown to an organization of more than 3,000 members, and is chartered as a nonprofit organization in the state of Illinois. Although the ranks of our membership include professional pomologists, nurserymen, and commercial orchardists, NAFEX members are all AMATEURS in the truest sense of the word; they are motivated by their LOVE of fine fruit. NAFEX members typically work together to help each other by sharing ideas, information, experiences, and propagating material.

We communicate with each other via our online list and POMONA, a quarterly journal assembled largely from articles submitted by the membership which is published online in the Members' Only section of the website and in one printed issue annually. A diverse assortment of interests and approaches are represented. While many of us are involved in collecting and growing well-known fruit like apples and pears, others are specialists in so-called "minor" fruit such as mayhaws, kiwis, persimmons, and pawpaws.

NEW!The Apple Grower: A Guide for the Organic Orchardist
by Michael Phillips
2005 Updated, expanded, and revised edition, 256 320pages, many color photos, charts / diagrams.

Even in these health-conscious times, with demand for organically grown foods fast increasing, it's still hard to find a good-tasting, locally grown, organic apple. Faced with an impressive rogue's gallery of potential insect pests--curculio, codling moth, and others--most orchard "experts" will tell you flat out that growing apples organically is impossible.

For decades fruit growers have sprayed their trees with toxic chemicals in an attempt to control a range of insect and fungal pests. Yet it is possible to grow apples responsibly, by applying the intuitive knowledge of our great-grandparents with the fruits of modern scientific research and innovation.

Fortunately, Michael Phillips and growers like him didn't listen. For several years now, Phillips has been "doing the impossible" at Lost Nation Orchard in Northern New Hampshire--growing apples successfully using no artificial pesticides or fertilizers. His secret lies in hard work, creative marketing, and a willingness to observe and learn from nature. The definitive guide to growing apples wisely, naturally, and with gentle impact on the earth.

Since The Apple Grower first appeared in 1998, orchardist Michael Phillips has continued his research with apples, which have been called “organic’s final frontier.” In this new edition of his widely acclaimed work, Phillips delves even deeper into the mysteries of growing good fruit with minimal inputs. Some of the cuttingedge topics he explores include:

* The use of kaolin clay as an effective strategy against curculio and borers, as well as its limitations
* Creating a diverse, healthy orchard ecosystem through understory management of plants, nutrients, and beneficial microorganisms
* How to make a small apple business viable by focusing on heritage and regional varieties, value-added products, and the “community orchard” model

The author’s personal voice and clear-eyed advice have already made The Apple Grower a classic among small-scale growers and home orchardists. In fact, anyone serious about succeeding with apples needs to have this updated edition on their bookshelf.

Empire Chestnut Company, Ph: (330) 627-3181, 3276 Empire Road SW, Carrollton, OH 44615
We are a second generation family business. Our chestnut business was derived from my father's tree farming hobby on our 180 acre farm in east central Ohio. Between 1958 and 1970, many kinds of forest trees, fruit trees, and nut trees (including Chinese chestnuts), were planted. By 1970, it was obvious that the Chinese chestnuts were the best adapted and most promising crop producers of all the trees that were planted. So, in 1972 we planted over 600 seedlings from our best chestnut mother trees. As a result of this and subsequent larger plantings, we have one of the few chestnut orchards in the USA which can be considered to be of commercial size. Based on the success of these plantings, chestnuts have become my full-time occupation since 1984.

The nursery was approximately 10 acres with a crew of approximately 10 employees and focused mainly on apple rootstock. It has been almost 20 years now and much has changed. The nursery has grown as has our crew. Many of those original employees are still with us and during our peak season we generally have five times our original number. We now have 130 acres of rootstock consisting of apples, cherries, pears and plums, along with many deciduous ornamental tree varieties that we ship all over the world.
