The process of making apple butter is a time-intensive, age-old, labor of love. Dozens of volunteers, including many of our members and visitors, take part in the peeling and slicing of the apples and the stirring of the copper kettles as the apple slices break down into apple butter. Come and be part of this annual tradition. Start your own fall family memory.
