The Salem Historical Society

Tuesday’s October 13 Monthly Meeting of the Salem Historical Society will feature “Fall Farm Foods“ as presented by Debbie Hull Pifer, Whitehouse Fruit Farm and Ginger Grilli.

The Hull family of White House Fruit Farm are third generation fruit and vegetable growers.  The family has owned our 200 acres since 1815.  They currently grow apples, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, blueberries, and a wide range of vegetables.  In addition to produce, they offer a year round farm market with a deli, over 3000 specialty foods, a bakery that specializes in donuts, pies, crisps, fudge, and their own apple cider.

Fall’s bountiful harvest includes all manners of fruit and vegetable.  At this month’s program the speakers will be talking apples and pumpkins.  Debbie will describe the White House operation and give tips for buying, storing and using apples.  She will bring samples to taste.  Ginger will give a short history of the JM Smucker’s Salem processing operations and also of Salem ’s J. B. McNab’s Choice Pie Pumpkin in tin cans.

As a reminder to Society members, there will be voting on the revision of the by-laws during the business session.

The 7:00 meeting is open to the public and will be held at the Dale Shaffer Library’s meeting room at 239 South Lundy Avenue with parking suggested in the city municipal parking lot on South Lundy Avenue.

Greeter will be Curator Janice Lesher.  For refreshments members are asked to bring apple or pumpkin treats to share at the meeting.

Further information can be obtained by calling the Society, 330-337-8514.
