Tavern Talks: Well-Preserved

How did Colonists prepare for the hard, winter months? During September’s Tavern Talks we'll be exploring the various ways Colonists planned for the winter, such as preserving foods, sewing and spinning, candle-making and more! Guest demonstrators for the evening include herb drying and preservation with Terra Luna Herbals, preparing cheese with Amazing Acres Goat Dairy, spinning wool with Greenbank Mills & Philips Farm, beekeeping with Brandywine Bee Company, and learning about the power of vinegar with Keepwell Vinegar. Tavern Talks is a monthly experience (not a lecture!) aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older that focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. Guests will experience history with hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more. Tavern Talks takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns Brinton House, an historic 1714 tavern, located next to the Chaddsford Winery at 630 Baltimore Pike. Admission is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person or online as space is limited. All attendees must be 21 and older. We have two more Tavern Talks left for the year! Our other Tavern Talks topics include: October 12 – Spirits & Spirits November 9 – Feast Mode!
