Do the names Gravenstein, Pippin, Old Macintosh, or Greening sound familiar? They were once well known apple varieties but are now just some of our lost legacy fruits.

Jennifer Ferris  loves a good mystery and has been spending her time tracking down heritage apple varieties throughout Lanark County and creating the Facebook page ‘Lost Lanark Legacy Fruit Trees’. Jennifer will share stories of apple trees long forgotten, local history, and botany she has uncovered in her quest to save our heritage apple trees from extinction.
