Andy Brennan of Aaron Burr Cider wrote a book – Uncultivated Wild Apples, Real Cider, and the Complicated Art of Making a Living.
From Chelsea Green Publishing:
“The hero of this book is the wild apple. Uncultivated follows Brennan’s twenty-four-year history with naturalized trees and shows how they have guided him toward successes in agriculture, in the art of cider making, and in creating a small-farm business. The book contains useful information relevant to those particular fields, but is designed to connect the wild to a far greater audience, skillfully blending cultural criticism with a food activist’s agenda.”
