Plantation Days at Patsiliga Plantation
Here is a little known event in Talbot County. I have lived here for over ten years and have never heard of it until a friend invited us to go yesterday. Apparently, they hold this festival the first weekend of every November.
They have one of the last working water mills in the state and are selling grits, cornmeal, and flour that were ground on site. It's a good Christmas present idea!
There were working demonstrations of a steam engine, train rides, blacksmithing, cane syrup, great BBQ, fried pies, live music, etc, etc.
Speaking of blacksmithing, when I was buying a cast iron cornbread pan, I found out that there is a blacksmithing club at Fort Mitchell. They meet the 4th Saturday of each month. I may just have to join! It could be something fun for hubby and I to do together.
