Heirloom Apple Tasting with Locally Produced Wine and Cheese October 3rd

Heirloom Apple Tasting with Locally Produced Wine and Cheese
Sunday, October 3, 3:00 until 5:30
Boone Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
381 East King St., Boone, NC
Join two of our local apple growers, Ron Joyner and Bill Moretz, as they share their knowledge and harvest of old apple varieties for a tasting. An incredible diversity of apples was once a part of the cultural heritage of the Appalachian region. Now, many of us are familiar with less than 10 varieties that are offered in grocery stores.
For the tasting, the history and subtleties of each variety will be discussed in detail. The New River Winery, Stick Boy Bread Company, Ripshin Goat Dairy, Heritage Homestead Goat Cheese Dairy are donating products to enhance the experience.
A donation of $15.00 per person or $25.00 per couple is requested to benefit Slow Food Boone, High Country and the National Committee for the New River.
RSVP by calling NC Cooperative Extension at 828.264.3061 or e-mailing Margie Mansure, Margie_mansure@ncsu.edu by Friday, October 1st.
