Took a DNA Test, Turns Out…


Thanks to a university lab in Ontario, we have the opportunity to have every one of the heritage apple trees on our property DNA tested to confirm what variety they are.  Although we know the site has an impressive collection of heritage apples, many of them are a mystery either because of transcription errors  or lack of proper documentation. This testing will allow us, once and for all, to confirm the identify of every tree on site.

By supporting this crowdfunding effort, you’re helping us better understand the agricultural history of our region and the important role heritage apple varieties have played in its development. We’re also offering a series of special rewards for those contributing larger amounts.
