Where can I get information or purchase old apple trees that are not grafted, but will grow in northern Minn?

You are asking way too much. If you are going to have the old varieties you want (or any variety, for that matter), they will have to be grafted. Apples don't breed true. Any tree that is grown from seed will be whatever it wants to be. You might get lucky and you might not.
I'm sure there are websites devoted to the old varieties of apples. Try a search using "antique apple" or "heritage" or something like that.
