An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but pressing them, peeling them and “stomping” them can be healthy too…as you’ll find by visiting Howell Farm on Saturday, November 9th.
The techniques used on the farm to make apple cider, applesauce and apple pie are healthfully reminiscent of those used a century ago, when people – not motors – powered the cranks, handles and other appliances used to process food.
From 10:00am to 4:00pm, visitors to this 130-acre working farm can sample the work, fun and tastes of a circa-1900 apple harvest. Visitors of all ages will be invited to use the Farm’s old-fashioned presses, peeler-corers, and “stomper-strainers” to help farmers process apples. For the hungry, there will be apple pie and other apple treats.
