weekends with yankee
Past and Present

This week on Weekends with Yankee, we explore how New England's past continues to shape its present. First, we take a tasty trip back in time at Scott Farm Orchard in Dummerston, Vermont, which grows more than 100 apple varieties, some of which date back to the 1600s. Next, we swing through New Hampshire and find that old-school farming techniques are very much alive at Coppal House Farm, where much of the equipment is still powered by draft horses. For the finale, we hop aboard the historic windjammer J&E Riggin, a two-masted schooner built in 1927 that still sails along the Maine coast. Back in the Test Kitchen, cohost and Yankee senior food editor Amy Traverso takes inspiration from our orchard visit to make some delectable apple cider doughnut muffins.
