If you think it was a hot day last Sunday for the Applefest at the Justin Morrill Homestead, ask the sheep how it felt in their wool sweaters! This year, about 330 people attended the annual Applefest, which had steer, sheep, and chickens to pet, as well as games, cider pressing, ice cream, cheese and apples to taste, live music, and the apple pie baking contest. The popular apple pie contest had over 50 entries. Bertha Emmerilich won first prize, Cindy Cameron won second and Tracey McFadden won third. Pictured are Emily Howe and Nancy C. DeFeudis at the pie judging. (Provided / Donna Hollinger)
