Scholars & Scones: Apple Tasting with Moretz Mountain Apples
This program will be tasty and educational! Bill Moretz of Moretz Moutain Orchard will be on hand answering all our apple questions and telling us about the process of operating an apple orchard. Bill is also bringing many of his apples which are currently in season. Everyone in attendance will have an opportunity to sample the different apples and even purchase some to take home! So please bring cash if you would like to take a bag of fresh mountain apples home with you!
