Experience life on the “one horse farm” in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us on December 6th from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM for a cooking demonstration on the wood burning stove. Late fall and early winter brought cool weather that allowed for the butchering of a hog in time for the holidays. The fresh pork was a welcome change from the cured pork of the smokehouse. Rendering lard from the fat for holiday dishes was also a part of this first butchering. Join us as staff demonstrates the process of rendering lard from pork fat in this month’s cooking demonstration.
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.
