Those who first glean apples from the wild, year after year, both from long-abandoned orchard trees or truly wild seedling trees, begin to discover individual and social characteristics that are unique to wild trees. The resiliency of these trees offers wisdom that may reshape the monocultural approach to conventional orchard management, and their fruit offers diversity needed for the cider industry.
This chat will be moderated by James Beard Award winning author Rowan Jacobsen who penned the lovely volume "Apples of Uncommon Character".
Talk includes taste of ciders. Bottles and Rowan's book will be available for purchase in our bottle shop.
