The Nebraska Forest Service is celebrating the state's entrepreneurs during its annual "Nebraska Forest Festival" at Horning State Farm near Plattsmouth on October 27th, 2018.

We are highlighting the women and men who utilize trees and forest products to provide goods and services in our communities. Join the Nebraska Forest Service as it celebrates Nebraska’s growers, producers, and artisans during national forest products week. Vendors from around the area will be on hand showcasing and selling their locally-produced products. The Hop Yard will also be on hand, offering food and pints for purchase. For the eager forest enthusiast, there will also be two a half-day workshops on managing high-quality timber for top value and how to grow your own hazelnuts for personal or commercial use.
