Description
At the Orchard at Altapass, the answer to that question is The Clinchfield Railroad. Creighton Lee Calhoun, noted pomologist and author of Old Southern Apples, defines heirloom apples as those varieties that were grown prior to the time when groceries became the main source of fruit for most people, which he believes was the late 1920's. Many of our apple trees were planted by the original owners, making them heirlooms in every sense of the word.
