Apple Blossom Field Trip
As part of celebrating the Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia’s 75th year as a club, we will re-tracing our club’s first field trip. John Wm. Webb and Eugene Mio will be leading us on an Apple Blossom tour through the Annapolis Valley on Saturday, May 27. (Raindate of Sunday, May 28).
We will meet at the Grand Pré National Historic Site parking lot at 9:45 am. Carpool if desired, and depart at 10:00am to Prescott House in Starr’s Pt. The house will be open ($2.80 entry fee) and we also have the outside of the house, gardens and small orchard to photograph. From there we will visit Taproot Farm on Cunard Street. This farm is mostly organic and certified CSA Community Shared Agriculture. They have many animals and crops including an apple orchard. From there we will stop at Kingsport for a toilet break and then stop at Sarsfield Farm orchards. We can explore the orchards, if they have not sprayed recently. The it is off to Sheffield Mills to visit Richard Hennigar’s Suprima Farm organic orchard. Lastly, we visit the Northville Farm Heritage Centre. The farm may be closed but there is lots of buildings, farm tractors, equipment. On Sunday they are having an old fashion tractor pull.
We are going to have a late lunch at Callister’s Country Kitchen in Coldbrook at 4 pm sharp. So bring snacks and liquids to tide yourselves over until then.
For planning purposes, please email John (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 20 if you plan to attend the field trip and if you will be attending the meal at Callister’s.
