FAIR HILL — The Ce­cil County Farm Mu­seum has been peel­ing and boil­ing ap­ples in prepa­ra­tion for its an­nual Ap­ple But­ter Fes­ti­val, which will be held Satur­day from 10 a.m. un­til 4 p.m.

Ben Haines, mu­seum pres­i­dent, said once again this year the Ap­ple But­ter Mak­ing Fes­ti­val has hitched its cart to Fair Hill In­terna- tional and will be set up at the en­trance to the Fair Hill Fair­grounds on Route 273 near Route 213.

“Fair Hill In­ter­na­tional asked us to be there,” Haines said, adding they like the ex­tra cus­tomers they get from the folks ar­riv­ing for the eques­trian event. “We get a fair amount from the peo­ple in the park­ing lot.”

Mu­seum vol­un­teers have al­ready pro­cessed 515 pints of the deep brown, sweet and spicy spread, and will make an­other three ket­tles Satur­day.

While all those ket­tles are be­ing con­stantly stirred — and maybe you can take a turn — there is also mu­sic, ven­dors, demon­stra­tions and other fun planned, Haines said.

At 4 p.m., the win­ners of the gun raf­fle will be drawn. You need not be present to win, Haines said. Four ri­fles are be­ing raf­fled.
