Morris Arboretum’s Grist Mill Demonstration Day, Sept. 21

From a Press Release:

Morris Arboretum’s Grist Mill Demonstration Day

On Sunday, September 21 from noon-3pm, Morris Arboretum hosts Grist Mill Demonstration Day at Bloomfield Farm (across the street from garden’s main entrance).  Visit this historic creek-side flour mill to watch one-ton millstones grind corn kernels, and observe 160 year old machinery transport and sift the ground corn to produce meal.  This same process will be used to ground flour, which will be added to the ingredients to bake muffins on site.  Guided by volunteers, including Craig San Pietro pictured here, kids and adults will enjoy grinding their own flour on the pedal powered mill.  Free for members.  $5 for non-members or free with regular garden admission.  For more information about Morris Arboretum, please check the website,, or call 215-247-5777.
