Every Year, the Scott Farm welcomes visitors of all ages, from near and far, for Heirloom Apple Day-a one-day celebration of apples of all shapes, colors, tastes and their histories! Mark your calendars! This year we will gather on Sunday, October 9th, for our 19th Annual Heirloom apple day.
Tastings and talks at 11am and 1:30pm
Featuring two well beloved apple lovers and social media stars:
Sean Turley is a lifelong fruit enthusiast and an amateur apple picker and sleuth. Every Fall, Sean dedicated himself to locating and devouring as many of Maine’s heritage and wild apple varietals as possible. Sean posts his finds on Instagram @therighteousrusset.
Matt Kaminsky is a self described apple forager and cider maker. Kaminsky goes by the name @gnarlypippins and writes a blog in the same name. He is the author of The Wild Apple Forager. The Boston Globe featured an article about Matt and his passionate work in October of 2020.
Guests will also learn about the enlightening history of Scott Farm orchard and some of its 130 varieties of ecologically grown fruits. There will be apple tastings after each talk.
After the talk and tasting, guests can fill totes with the heirlooms they like best, to purchase and take home, along with freshly pressed heirloom cider.
In the event room, we will display our traditional table displaying our collection of heirloom apples
Farm Market and Pick Your Own apple orchard
Our Farm Market and Pick Your Own Orchard will be open to the public starting at 10am and until 6pm. For more details on what varieties are available, check the home page of the website.
Food trucks (Jamaican Jewel’s and Jaci’s BBQ joint) + Scott Farm famous crêpes!
