Food History at ALHFAM

The 39th annual Association of Living History, Farm and Agricultural Museums commenced with workshops Saturday June 6th at Old Salem Museum and Gardens, Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Two food history related pre-conference programs were offered. Since I had participated in a bake oven workshop at the 1992 Winston-Salem conference, I opted to take a bus trip to the Seagrove Area Potteries. My main purpose was to visit Westmore Pottery, . Mary and David Farrell have been reproducing high quality pottery made and used in America between 1650 to 1850. I have been recommending their pipkins for years and incorporate many of their redware pieces in my food history business . I was thrilled to finally meet them and visit their shop. I now have many more of their reproductions!
