International Tours

Onions Around the World

A most unique feature of the NOA is their international excursions. By hosting these tours, NOA has given producers a global view of onion farms and packing facilities, seed development operations, and horticulture experiment stations across the world. Every tour has offered insights to the domestic and export markets and opportunities to interact with local businesses on location and at social events as part of the schedule.

Cheddar  & Beer Bisque
Cheddar & Beer Bisque

Cheddar and beer are a union that is about as old as time itself. For this cozy bisque, a hearty dose of Brown Ale, Altbier, or Maibock takes a standard on the soup circuit from ordinary to extraordinary!
