6 p.m., Portland Museum of Art Auditorium
7 Congress Square, Portland, Maine 04101


It’s hard to find a Mainer who doesn’t appreciate – or love – apples, but have you ever tried a Briggs Auburn, Winthrop Greening, or Nutting Bumpus? These apples, and many more, originated in Maine and continue to play an important role in each of Maine's sixteen counties. Apples are at the center of Maine's agricultural history. They feed us throughout the year and decorate our lives through countless artworks, but what do we really know about apples? John Bunker, of Super Chilly Farm in Palermo, Maine, and Maine Heritage Orchard founder, knows apples. The Portland Museum of Art (PMA) and MOFGA welcome John Bunker as he shares his passion for Maine heritage apple varieties in this special talk. A reception follows with cider tastings of both hard cider and sweet cider made by local cider makers using Maine heritage apple varieties, as well as samples of apples from John's farm.

$10 general admission, $5 for MOFGA and PMA members. FMI contact Lucy Cayard at
