According to the news release from the library, Bob Sewall is a long-time organic apple grower and former president of Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners. After preparing his fields organically for two years using the Rodale method, he planted 550 trees to create what is now the oldest certified organic orchard in Maine still in operation.

Besides farming, consulting and mentoring young farmers, he speaks to groups around the state about his organic apple cider vinegar, which was voted Best of Maine by Down East Magazine in 2008, the only year they had a vinegar category.

The Sewell Orchard vinegar is widely used in restaurants and businesses in Maine, and he has been featured in a number of publications and news articles.
