This month we celebrate the life of apple evangelist, Johnny Appleseed!
One of America’s fondest legends is that of Johnny Appleseed, a folk hero and pioneer apple farmer in the 1800’s. There really was a Johnny Appleseed and his real name was John Chapman. He was born in Leominster, Massachusetts in 1774. His dream was to produce so many apples that no one would ever go hungry. Although legend paints a picture of Johnny as a dreamy wanderer, planting apple seeds throughout the countryside, research reveals him to be a careful, organized businessman, who over a period of nearly fifty years, bought and sold tracts of land and developed thousands of productive apple trees.
So, when you visit us this month, just tell us what Mr. Appleseed’s real name is when you purchase a bottle at Sea Cider. We will treat you to a complimentary glass of our March cocktail – the Johnny Appleseed!
