Syrup Day at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm

Presented by L. W. Paul Living History Farm - A large part of farm life in the first half of the twentieth century was old-fashioned syrup making. Locals grew cane and cooked syrup in the fall for the upcoming year.  Cooking down the raw juice into sweet cane syrup became a celebration and gathering for the community. 

Join us to relive that celebration for an old time cooking at the L. W. Paul Living History Farm Saturday, November 14, 2015, from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm as staff and volunteers will be making syrup. The sugar cane used for making the syrup is grown on site.

Minnie the Mule will demonstrate traditional cane grinding. Traditional early farm living techniques will also be demonstrated throughout the day. This includes Lye soap making, grinding corn, hand stitch sewing, log cutting, cooking on a wood stove, butter making and more.

The homemade syrup, stone-ground grits, and cornmeal will be available for purchase in the Visitor’s Center snack shop area.

The L. W. Farm is located at Hwy. 701 North, 2279 Harris Shortcut Road, Conway, SC 29526. For further information, please call 365-5396 or e-mail [email protected].
