Horticulturalist Sees Grape Production Potential In Potter County

From Potter County Today

A Penn State Cooperative Extension horticulturalist sees potential in Potter County for growing grapes, based on climate and other factors. Agricultural Coordinator Bill Waltman has been spearheading a project, coordinated with the 4-H community garden now in its second growing season at Maple View.

Three grape varieties have been tested at the community garden. Results could lead local farmers and others to consider starting their own vineyards. Technical assistance is available to growers who want to give it a try. Waltman said if the crop catches on, perhaps Potter County could become known for grapes, wine, and related tourism. More information is available at 274-8540.
