Cooking demonstration at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm: Collard Greens & Hoppin’ Johns

January Cooking Demonstration

Experience life on the “one horse farm” in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us on January 4th from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM to learn about the New Year’s Day meal of collard greens and hoppin’ johns, also known as ‘Dollars and Pennies’. A traditional New Year’s meal on many farms would have been collard greens, dried peas, hog jowls, and peas cooked in rice. Many people still carry on this tradition to represent green (paper) money and brown money (pennies) that they hope to have more of during the upcoming year. Join us to see how this meal would have been prepared on the wood burning stove.
A free, hour long, guided tour of the Farm will be available to the public at 3:00 PM following the demonstration.
The L. W. Paul Living History Farm is open Tuesday-Saturday 9 AM-4 PM and teaches the history of the Horry County farm family. The farm is free and open to the public and is located at the corner of Hwy 701 North and Harris Short Cut Road in Conway, SC. For more information, call the L. W.
