Apples have been the center of the New England harvest since the British first brought seeds and cuttings across the Atlantic in the 17th century. Now, New England’s apple orchards grow some 40 varieties of apples, providing fruit to snack on as well as for juices, ciders, pies, and desserts. Participate in hands-on programming pressing cider and baking pie from a variety of locally-grown apples. With the Museum’s colonial hearth, there is no better way to taste history. Throughout the day, contribute to the community art mural, which asks: What can you add to our apple orchard? Hurry into the Museum to get a flavor of the harvest before it runs out! Appropriate for all ages.
