Boston Globe Article Praises Scott Farm’s Heirloom Apple Pie Workshop!

Heirloom apple pie class at Scott Farm OrchardAfter journalist Patti Woods attended our Oct. Heirloom Apple Pie Workshop she followed up with an article in the Boston Globe, Giving Pie the Side-eye: How a Heirloom Pie Won me Over, published on Jan 2, 1018. Woods, who loves to bake but admits she’s not a fan of cooked fruit pies, came to learn how to make a “perfect” heirloom apple pie for her husband and son’s enjoyment. After tasting her pie, made with Scott Farm’s Northern Spys, Belle de Boskoop and Calville Blanc D’hiver apples and heirloom apple cider, she changed her thinking–saying “It’s magnificent. This is what I imagine a traditional Thanksgiving apple pie should taste like. Not too sweet, not at all mushy. It’s vibrant and apple-y and best of all, I was the one who made it.”  Enjoy reading the article and we hope you’ll join us for one of our upcoming pie baking workshops in 2018!
