Monthly Feature
The first McIntosh orchard was started in 1811 in the heart of Dundas County in Ottawa Canada when John McIntosh bought the Dundela farm and discovered 20 apple trees in the woods. He transplanted them into a garden next to his log shanty, but all the trees, save one, had died by 1830.

Forty years later, his son Allan used the seedlings to plant a red apple nursery where the original tree survived, bearing fruit until 1906.

Today, every tree growing McIntosh apples descended directly from John McIntosh's orchard.
