One event on October 10, 2021 at 11:00 am
APPLE BUTTER TOURS – OCTOBER 9 & 10 – 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days
You are invited to purchase a ticket for one of the 10-person Apple Butter Tours. Led by a Fenner tour guide, you will visit the old apple orchard and sit around our apple peeling table to learn about this farm-to-table product, how it is made and how it is tied to our Michigander heritage. Participants will also have the opportunity to take a turn at the stirring paddle as we cook the apple butter over the fire, press cider, use the crosscut saw and participate in other hands-on demonstrations of community-centered traditions.
Each tour runs 1 hour and 30 minutes. Between tours, each station will be sanitized in preparation for the next group. Participants will be required to wear masks for the duration of their tour, even outside, and will be required to sanitize their hands upon arrival. Additional hand sanitizer will be provided at each station. Fenner Nature Center will also record participants’ contact information for contact tracing purposes.
Tickets are $15 per person for Fenner Conservancy Members and $20 per person for Non-Members.
