Mayhaw Berry Harvest Festivals
We have a festival every year celebrating the harvest of our Mayhaw Berry trees. Besides fresh Mayhaw berries, we have jelly cooking classes, hayrides, a petting zoo, food samples, local vendors and artisans, and sometime music. Follow the link in the heading for this year’s details. Previous events can be found at the links below and we keep photos in our Gallery.
We’ve been having these festivals since 2007 although we only have digital records since 2011. We always have hayrides. This photo is from 2009.
Annual Fall Farm Tours
We are continuing the tradition of the Fall Farm Tours that New Leaf Market started years ago. (See the section below.) The Millstone Institute for Preservation in Tallahassee took up the organizational role, and we are one of many farms eager to open our gates to share what we do with anyone who’s interested.
You can view our upcoming, or most recent, Farm Tour HERE.
New Leaf Market Farm Tours
In 2016, New Leaf Market gave up the monumental task of organizing and marketing the North Florida and South Georgia Farm Tour, and Millstone Plantation took up the mantle.
We are one of the original participants in the annual Regional Farm Tour put on by New Leaf Market in Tallahassee. This event takes place in the fall. You can be notified by signing up for our newsletter.
We presented this workshop to nearly 50 people in January 2012. Maybe we’ll do some more, but you can see the video on YouTube.
We hosted the 2012 Spring Gathering for the Meat Sheep Alliance of Florida on April 20, 21 and 22, 2012. It was the same weekend as the Monticello music festival, Southern Music Rising and anyone who wanted to learn about sheep was welcome.
Farm to Table Gourmet Dinner
We put on two, gourmet, Farm to Table Dinners in 2012 and 2013, in conjunction with the New Leaf Farm Tours. It was a great way to show off the finest in local, sustainably grown food and cooking. Too much work for us, with not enough return, though, so we stopped.
