"SCRUMPING" Series

presented by Al Yelvington of Happy Dog Farm (https://happydogfarm.com)

Scrumping is a term, perhaps known to our local forage and feast community, for locating and harvesting wild apples to make cider.  Al presents this series on activities throughout the season from identifying wild trees and orchards in various seasonal stages, caring for a neglected tree or orchard to ensure a harvest, and identifying the best fruit to harvest for cider.  Check out his personal reading list here and also click here for some library resources to help you if you decide to jump into this activity.  Please enjoy!
