Branch Hill Farm is once again co-hosting two Heirloom Apple Tree Grafting Workshops this spring. By the end of
each class, each person will have completed grafting their own small apple tree to take home, using a
scion (living shoot) collected from local heirloom trees. Workshop Instructor Jared Kane is the Executive
Director of Branch Hill Farm and head orchardist of their Preservation and Cider Orchards. He is
dedicated to growing and preserving historical apples and pears, as well as exciting wild foundlings.
Jared’s cider has received awards in some of the world’s largest and most respected cider competitions!
