Mr. Trent’s Apple Orchard
at the 1719 William Trent House Museum
on Saturday, October 21,
The Trent estate would have had an orchard of perhaps 100 trees or more, sufficient to yield 1,000 gallons of cider per year. Today, we have established a miniature orchard on the Trent House grounds of heirloom varieties grown during Mr. Trent’s time.
Come and learn…
- why apples were an important part of everyday Colonial life
- how apples are cultivated and new varieties grown
- the many varieties the Trents might have enjoyed
- how the apple orchard came to be at the Trent House
- how you can help it grow
This is a rain or shine event.

Apple wine and hard cider tastings will be available for an additional fee. Photo ID required.
