Milling, Cider Making and Open Hearth Cooking at Peirce Mill

Last Date:

Take a journey back to the 19th century as you watch millstones turn corn into cornmeal, view old-fashioned open hearth cooking including fruit turnovers that are cooked in a skillet (samples anyone?). Try your hand at the hand-cranked cider press making cider the old-fashioned way. Games for children, tours of the mill and videos showing how the mill operated.

The millstone grinds cornmeal between 11:00 and 2:00.  There will be cider making, open hearth cooking and children’s games from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.
