Apple Days - Sturbridge, Massachusetts

Taste nearly forgotten heirloom apple varieties and mulled cider at Sturbridge Village's Apple Days. Help the farmers harvest apples, try your hand at cider-making, and see the ox-powered Cider Mill in operation grinding apples. OSV historians will make apple pie plates in the Pottery Shop, apple corers in the Tin Shop, mulling irons in the Blacksmith Shop, and will cook with apples over the hearth in the Small House.

Join Village horticulturists for an orchard walk and learn the amazing origins of some of today's popular apple varieties. And try plowing with the Village oxen as farmers start a new seedling orchard.
