Saturday, September 22 is also the last day of "Apple Week" at Sauder Village!  Fall is the favorite season for many in the Midwest, and what better way to welcome in the season with a week dedicated to apples? Sauder Village will be highlighting this fall fruit throughout the week with special apple-themed recipes in our historic homes and hands-on activities. Visitors will also be able to visit our 130 year-old cider mill-it’s a guest favorite.  On Saturday guests can join us for a day of apple butter making! Watch us schnitz and stir our way through a batch of delicious apple butter. Sneak a sample fresh from the kettle and make this harvesting tradition one of your family’s own!
