Calling all apple enthusiasts! Let’s unveil the delicious history of the Blue Mountains apple harvest.

Join us with special guest Alessia Farris, Curator of the Craigleith Heritage Depot as we explore the documented and fascinating story of local apple production in The Blue Mountains region that has thrived for nearly two centuries, dating back to the 1830s.

Learn about the area’s unique microclimate, influenced by Georgian Bay and the Niagara Escarpment, that provides ideal conditions for apple cultivation. Discover the changes in growing practices over time and the evolution of apple products and its impact on the local economy.
