Summary "Known for their hardiness, adaptability, natural diversity, and plentiful bounty, wild apples can be truly called 'America's fruit.' They are not the familiar commercial varieties that rely on human intervention and can still be found in the fields and woodland edges surrounding old abandoned farms and homesteads. Wild apple trees -- know as seedlings or pippins -- have nearly vanished from the American agricultural landscape, along with their bittersweet complexities, nuances of flavor, and the fine ciders they produce. Now Andy Brennan, founder of Aaron Burr Cider in the Catskills region of New York, is one of the leading voices making a case for their return. In uncultivated: Wild Apples, Real Cider and the Complicated Art of Making a Living, Brenna's hero is the tenacious wild apple and the superior cider it produces. In candid and philosophical prose, he shares his decades-long experience working with naturalized trees -- from discovering new tastes and textures to understanding how the wild apple tree guided him toward a successful, environmentally conscious business. At the heart of his story is Brennan's faith in nature and its unfailing ability to deliver us from our own mistakes."-- jacket.
