Butter & Baking
Cedar Creek Grist Mill
Special Events Calendar 2013
- May 25th - Spin In at the Mill.
Because wool production has been so important to Washington, we'd like you
to see where it all starts. One person and one spinning wheel can turn
sheep's wool into yarn. Even before our Mill was built in 1876, water
powered mills were used to wash, card, spin and weave fabric. Our Mill
Spinners will show you what wool is like and why no other fiber is quite the
same. We'll even let you try your hand at this ancient craft.
- June 29th - Treat Day
Treat Day is the time we get to let loose, and have some fun. Cookies,
Cakes, Scones, Muffins, and even doggie biscuits are likely to turn up. Our
volunteers will whip up their favorite goodies and we will be sharing them
with our visitors. There will be plenty of coffee and milk to wash down
those cookies. We like to share our recipes, too.
- July 27th - Blueberry Pancake Day
Today we sample some of the best blueberries of Clark County. The Mill has
partnered with our local farms to offer you the healthiest whole wheat
pancakes filled with fresh blueberries, topped with homemade blueberry
syrup, and topped with more fresh blueberries. Did I mention that we really
- August 31st - Cornbread and Bluegrass Day
Cornbread has a long and colorful history in America. Cornbread, hoe-cakes,
johnnycakes. hush puppies, anadama bread are just some of the names that are
variations on the humble cornbread. Our cornbread will come to you dressed
up with onions, bacon, chilies, herbs, cheese, apples, raspberries, and what
ever our creative cooks dream up. Have it sweet with honey or savory with
butter, but either way, cornbread and its whole grain goodness is the star
today. Try a few samples and take home the recipes that you like best.
While you're munching on your down home country snacks, listen to the
musicians jamming on their fiddles and guitars, mandolins and banjos. I
wonder how I came to be so lucky to be able to live here.
- September 28th Bread and Butter Day.
One of our oldest events at the Mill, We will be teaching our young guests
to churn butter and while we are busy churning, the boys are going to
rolling, cutting, and frying fresh bread. Of course, our bread is made with
the finest whole wheat milled right in front of you. So how can you top
homemade bread with homemade butter? With cinnamon sugar, naturally!
All our events are held the last Saturday of
the month from May to September. Join us between 1 pm and 4 pm.
Please be polite when parking at the Mill. We have elderly guests who may need
extra time or space at the Mill entrance.
