Oct 12, 2018

Lincolnville — Long-time organic apple grower Bob Sewall will speak at the Lincolnville Community Library, at 208 Main St., on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m.

Sewall is former president of Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association. After preparing his fields organically for two years using the Rodale method, he planted 550 trees to create what is now the oldest certified organic orchard in Maine still in operation.

Sewall and his wife, Mia Mantello, will explain how vinegar is made and speak about the many uses for vinegar, from cooking to use for its multiple medicinal benefits. There will be aged vinegar to sample.

Besides farming, consulting and mentoring young farmers, Sewall speaks to groups around the state about his organic apple cider vinegar, which was voted "Best of Maine” by Down East Magazine in 2008, the only year they had a vinegar category.
