Perceiving Apples

Perceiving Apples

A discussion of Maine heritage apples

It’s hard to find a Mainer who doesn’t appreciate—or love—apples, but have you ever tried a Briggs Auburn, Winthrop Greening, or Nutting Bumpus? These apples, and many more, originated in Maine and continue to play an important role in each of Maine's sixteen counties. Apples are at the center of Maine's agricultural history. 

John Bunker, of Super Chilly Farm in Palermo, Maine and Maine Heritage Orchard founder, knows apples. The PMA and Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association welcome John Bunker as he shares his passion for Maine heritage apple varieties in this special talk. A reception follows with cider tastings, both hard and fresh, made from Maine heritage varieties as well as samples of apples from John's farm.
