Cooking Demonstration – Pickling Vegetables on the Farm
Jul 6 @ 11:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Experience life on the “one horse farm” in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. In spring, families would typically plant a small garden that would yield a variety of vegetables by the summer. Some of these vegetables, especially cucumbers, would be set aside for pickling. Join us on July 6th from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM to see how these foods would have been preserved for later use. A free, hour long, guided tour of the Farm will be available to the public at 3:00 PM following the demonstration.

The L. W. Paul Living History Farm is open Tuesday-Saturday 9 AM-4 PM and teaches the history of the Horry County farm family. The farm is free and open to the public and is located at the corner of Hwy 701 North and Harris Short Cut Road in Conway, SC. For more information, call the L. W. Paul Living History Farm at 843-365-3596 or email [email protected]. For a full list of programs and events at the Horry County Museum and L.W. Paul Living History Farm, visit www.horrycountymuseum.org.
