An Apple History of Maine

talk with John Bunker

Wednesday, October 14, 6-7pm

Ever since the first Europeans arrived over 400 years ago in what is now Maine, apples have been with them. For forty-five years pomologist John Bunker has been pulling over by the side of the road to marvel at ancient apple trees, has picked his way through old books and diaries, hung out with old timers, grafted new trees, and made lots of pies, sauce and cider in his quest to re-discover and the identity of the forgotten apple varieties of Maine. The connection between apples and Mainers tell the story of the state's history from Kittery to Fort Kent. Join John for a look at a the history of apple farming in Maine’s 16 counties from its colonial beginnings to the present and long partnership that has no sign of letting up any time soon.
