Description

Terry Dorman, owner and manager of Whitman Brook Orchard, leads this tour as the orchard prepares for harvest season. Learn the history of certain apples, as well the characteristics and uses for a number of the lesser-known varieties grown at Whitman Brook. The walk offers a close-up look at the reclamation and restoration of a 100-year-old abandoned hillside orchard with an opportunity to examine the evolution of grafting techniques on older trees.  Participants will not only see the results of this year’s spring grafts, but also the evolution of earlier grafts now bearing fruit.
