Vineyard shows cutting edge technology at field day

DSC_0021About 40 grape growers and enthusiasts from across the state congregated at Old Cellar Vineyard in Arapahoe on Saturday morning for a field day hosted by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.  The focus of the field day was to examine the vines at Old Cellar and also to discuss the use and effects of machinery and new technology at the vineyard.
Gary Thompson, owner of Old Cellar Vineyard, said that generally one or two locations are selected for the summertime field days.  Last summer he hosted two professors from UNL who really liked what they saw and asked him to host a field day.
