Amazing Heritage Apples!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Kid versus Wolf River apple. The kid definitely won!

We’re busy with organizing our sixth-annual Heritage Fall Fair on Sunday, Sept 22nd, and could use some extra volunteer assistance with pulling together our amazing heritage apple display for the event. That means helping track down orchards in the Okanagan-Similkameen with heritage and other non-market varieties, helping set up an informative display, helping run some apple-related activities on the day of our Fair and more.

If you can lend a hand or maybe have a lead on someone with heritage apple varieties in their orchard in the Similkameen or South Okanagan, please drop Chris a line at chris@oldgristmill.ca as soon as possible.

If you’re curious about the sorts of heritage varieties we’re interested in, here’s a list of many of the kinds of apples grown historically in the Okanagan:

Thanks, and please help us spread the word!
