L.W. Paul Living History Farm Fall Harvest & Syrup Making Day

On October 25, 2013 in Events

Conway, South Carolina — The L. W. Paul Living History Farm will hold a free Fall Harvest and Syrup Making Day Saturday, November 9, 2013, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. 


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.  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 corn meal 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 843-365-5396 or e-mail
