Rare Champagne Apples Will Be Available at Duluth’s ‘Apple Palooza’ Event
The Champagne Apple is only grown by one family on planet Earth, and they are bringing their apples to Duluth's Apple Palooza' this fall.
Dixon’s Apple Orchard out of Cadott, WI, the only grower of the Champagne Apple, is teaming up with Beaver River Farm in Duluth for 'Apple Palooza' for one day only in October. The event will feature plenty of family fun and lots of apples.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 1st for 'Apple Palooza' from 11 AM - 5 PM at Beaver River Farm located at 5936 Beaver River Rd. in Duluth. The event is free and will feature hayrides, a craft fair, a bouncy house, a food truck, and maybe a farm animal or two handing around.
The event will also feature live music from John & Andy from 1 PM - 4 PM, but it's all about the apples at 'Apple Palooza' so Dixon’s Apple Orchard is bringing plenty of their Champagne and Honeycrisp Apples, but they'll also have their apple cider.
The Champagne Apple was first grown in New Mexico by Fred Dixon in the early 1940s and remains in the family, Becky Mullane, Dixon's granddaughter had to move the operation to Wisconsin after a wildfire in New Mexico destroyed their ranch.
According to Mullane, the Champagne Apple is "sweet yet spicy", I like the sound of that, I never had an apple that I would use the term spicy to describe, so I defiantly want to try some of these.
Dixon's Apple Orchard does not only specialize in Apples, but they also grow raspberries, make wine, and have a wedding venue business, they are certainly keeping busy.
