Who was Johnny Appleseed? 

Did you know that Johnny Appleseed's real name was John Chapman? He got his nickname, because he was the man that carried around apple seeds, planting them, and growing trees all over the land. 

John Chapman was born on September 26, 1774, in Massachusetts. John's father, Nathaniel Chapman, was active in the Army, and his mother, Elizabeth Chapman, died at his birth. 


John's father was a farmer. When he noticed that his son was interested in his work, he set him up with an apprenticeship to become an orchardist, a person that manages an orchard. John learned very quickly and later grew into an independent orchardist.


In honor of Johnny Appleseed Day, we will be offering BRUNCH buffet in the Rose Hill Farm Taproom from 11:30am to 12:30pm. Pre-purchased tickets are $38 for adults and kids 10 years of age and younger are $12.

Subject to availability, in-person tickets will be $43 for adults and kids 10 years and younger $17. Secure your tickets now, because availability is limited! 

There will be kid's activities after brunch, including story time, crafts and seed planting! 

The Rose Hill Farm Taproom will operate as a cash bar with brunch-inspired specialty cocktails by the RH Ferments Team!

Starting at 1pm, we will be serving a modified à la carte brunch menu.
