You may have noticed that “Since 1842” appears on the label of all Mott’s apple products. That was the year Samuel Mott began selling apple cider and vinegar to his neighbors in Halfmoon, Saratoga County, NY. The Mott’s apple processing empire we know today grew from that humble beginning.
The Saratoga County Historical Society will host “Historian Tea Talk: The Mott’s Apple Empire,” a program set for Tuesday, March 21st.
This program will be hosted by Lynda Bryan, Halfmoon Town Historian. Bryan will take a look at the Motts apple processing empire in Saratoga County. Tea and cookies will be served.
Historian Tea Talks is a monthly series presented by historians from around Saratoga County.
This program will begin at 3 pm and will take place in the Long Room at Brookside Museum, located at 21 Fairground Avenue, in Ballston Spa.
