A large part of farm life in Horry County involved old-fashioned syrup making. Each fall, sugar cane would be gathered from the field and taken to a local cane mill where the juice could be squeezed from the stalk. Cooking down the raw juice into sweet cane syrup became a celebration and gathering for the community and is a tradition that is carried on each year at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us at the Farm Saturday, November 21st from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm as staff and volunteers demonstrate making cane syrup and a variety of other traditional activities including blacksmithing, cooking on a wood-burning stove, and more!
This event is free and open to the public. The L.W. Paul Living History Farm is located at 2279 Harris Short Cut Road in Conway, SC. For more information, call (843) 915-5321 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
