Heirloom Apple Day, October 9th

apple slices Heirloom Apple Day, Sunday, October 9th, is the one day each harvest season when we introduce the flavors, textures, and history of heirloom apples to our guests. Ezekiel Goodband, the Scott Farm Orchardist, will offer lectures at 10 a.m., 12 noon and 2 p.m. inside the event room, where seating is available.  Zeke will offer free samples while telling stories about his favorite in-season varieties.  Freshly pressed that morning, our heirloom apple cider is blended with a variety of rare apples and will be available in recyclable half gallon and quart  glass jars. Open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the Scott Farm Market has a wide selection of rare apples to choose from, frozen pies ready for baking, Vermont cheeses, and other locally made products.  Enjoy oven-fired pizza topped with heirloom apples and local cheeses, while relaxing at our picnic tables overlooking the Farm’s scenic ponds and mini-covered bridge.  Whetstone Ciderworks will have hard cider samplings and bottles for sale.  Cider maker Jason MacArthur uses many of Scott Farm’s heirloom cider apples in their quality hard cider.
