Morrill was planting his trees, apples were essential for every home, so much so that Morrill planted 18 varieties. Morrill, who went on to be a long-serving member of Congress, a founder of the Republican Party and chief architect of the Land-Grant Colleges Act, believed in self-sufficiency, and apples were a staple crop that stored well and provided juice for cider, Vermont Historic Preservation Officer Laura Trieschmann said in a telephone interview. Through the years, much of the original orchard, which sits on a hillside above the barn, has died off, and now just seven of the original trees remain, said Michael Caduto, executive director of Friends of Morrill Homestead, a nonprofit organization that maintains the house and grounds of the state-owned property.
