bushel basket of ripe red apples

Students visit the log cabin, where they learn about the many uses settlers had for their apple harvest.  Each student has the opportunity to create a dried apple wreath to take home.

In the Victorian cottage, active learning activities include using a reproduction late-1800’s apple peeler and playing the apple peel game.  The freshly peeled apples are used to make apple crisp to bake in the wood stove.  A sample of the results is always a highlight.
