Heirloom Apple Day

Each year on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend, we open our event room at Scott Farm for an heirloom apple tasting celebration. Orchard Manager Ezekiel Goodband will offer free samples of his favorite heirloom apples that he has collected over his 40-year career.  Zeke will also share the history and lore of these rare apple varieties.  

What was Thomas Jefferson’s favorite apple?  What does a Sheep’s Nose apple taste like? What was Henry David Thoreau’s favorite eating apple? 

Join us on Heirloom Apple Day and create your own heirloom apple sampler, order a GIFT BOX or stock up on your favorite apple.   Sample the unique flavors of these historic apples, and take home some of our famous heirloom cider.

Heirloom Apple Day is Sunday, October 9th  Rain or Shine.  Come celebrate with us as we  showcase many of the over 120 varieties we grow here on the farm.   Free tastings and apple lore at 10 a.m., 12 noon and 2 p.m.  The Farm Market is open from Labor Day until the day before Thanksgiving. 

Visit us this fall and celebrate apples at scenic Scott Farm, 707 Kipling Road, Dummerston, Vermont, 802-254-6868.
