The Montana Cherry Symposium will be a hands on interactive learning experience for all attendees. The Symposium will bring together experts from the cherry industry, producers and providers. Working together they will discover tools to grow the cherry industry and their businesses in Montana.
Speakers will engage the participants in a hands on, exciting learning experience. They will learn how to best grow the beautiful cherries of the Flathead region. Breakout sessions will encourage interaction between participants and presenters and encourage networking and discussion. The speakers and grower panel will entertain topics and answer questions that directly affect the growers.
The Cherry Cook-off is all about developing new ways to present Flathead Cherries in a variety of new dishes. Prizes will be awarded for the most outstanding recipes as well as a People's Choice winner.
The Montana Cherry Research & Market Developmnet Program was created by a vote of cherry producers following a process outline in the Agricultural Commodity Research and Market Development Enabling Act (MCA 80-11-510).
The Cherry Research & Market Development Program is administered by the Montana Department of Agriculture, which receives advice from the five-member Montana Cherry Advisory Committee. The committee invites proposals to fund demonstration projects, applied research and market development projects designed to address Montana's cherry industry needs and opportunities.
