Morris Arboretum’s Grist Mill Demonstration Day


On Sunday, June 21 from 1-4pm, Morris Arboretum hosts Grist Mill Demonstration Day at Bloomfield Farm (across the street from garden’s main entrance).  Visit this historic creek-side flour mill and watch one-ton millstones grind corn kernels, observe 160 year old machinery transport and sift the ground corn to produce meal.  This same process will be used to ground flour, which will be added to the ingredients to bake muffins on site.  Kids and adults will enjoy grinding their own flour on the pedal powered mill.  Free for members.  $5 for non-members or free with regular garden admission or STEAMpunk Expo ticket. To learn more about Morris Arboretum’s STEAMpunk Expo, please visit the website,  For general information about Morris Arboretum, go to, or call 215-247-5777.
