Immerse yourself in the past by learning the basics of those essential historic kitchen staples: bread and butter. In this unique three-hour experience, participants receive personalized instruction in baking and butter-churning under the guidance of our knowledgeable domestic life historians. We’ll prepare a simple bread recipe from scratch, bake it over the open hearth, and churn our own fresh butter by hand in our 1814 Summer Kitchen. Your day on the farm also includes tours of the new Renfrew Mill to learn about the process of grinding grain into flour and the 1810 Royer Milkhouse where fresh dairy was stored and processed into cream, butter, and cheese. Participants receive a souvenir ceramic butter bell and recipe card to take home, along with any leftover bread and butter. Join us for a delicious afternoon at Renfrew! Full program details and additional dates available on event website.
