The Baldwin has more legacy references than the ones dropped at a Cambridge Cotillion dance. Baldwin, née "Butters," was first discovered in 1746. It migrated to John Ball Farm to be nicknamed "Woodpecker," was championed by Deacon Thompson, then famously propagated by Colonel Baldwin in 1895. The Baldwin even has its own monument in Wilmington, MA – but the fresh one in your crate just wants to be admired for who it is, and not rely on family connections.
