August 26, Wild and Cultivated Grapes

by | Aug 24, 2016

This Friday at 10:00 a.m., forage about the farm with us for wild edibles, not the least of which is the wild grape.

We will share a thing or two about those one-of-a-kind Southern grapes I grew up eating. There is the proverbial “mouth sorting” of muscadines and scuppernongs and some great “how-to” information in regard to their culinary uses.

At our 10:45 demonstration, we will make a versatile bourbon and native grape condiment sauce.

We have some purslane starts and other pass-alongs available for $4, as well.

Come on out and see us at White Hills Farm Friday!
1419 Fort Creek Rd.
Dearing, GA 30808



Sitting on the porch that is the definition of home-grown comfort, Amy brought out a dish of pecans to snack on with our lavender iced tea. The pecans were sweet with a hint of salt and ... smoked! (Patrick throws a lot of stuff on the grill and in the smoker and the results are always spectacular.) The pecans were like heaven.

Between the lavender everywhere, the porch, the view, the company, and the pecans, we might just as well have been in heaven.

You'll want to go back again and again!

Among the gardens and 100-year-old farm house is a picturesque red barn where Amy and Patrick not only sell their merchandise but also entertain and/or put on workshops. I have had the pleasure of attending several of these events ranging from cookie making, to lavender harvesting and arranging, to yoga classes.

I am always looking for what they have available because once you experience the sheer beauty and peaceful feel of White Hills Farm you too will want to go back again and again.

For me, it's a place tied to fond memories

White Hills Farm is the perfect backdrop for any occasion -- it has this way of enveloping and elevating meaningful celebrations. For me, it's a place tied to fond memories and an eagerness to return. Year round, its something to behold, a slice of heaven run by the best of people.
