Story with a Farmer at CG Farmers Market
Friday, Sept 6 at 4:30 p.m.
CHINA GROVE — Join farmer Ashley McKnight with McKnight Family Homestead as she transports children and their sandwiches from farm to table as she reads the book “PB & J Hooray”! Children will gather on the front porch of the China Grove Roller Mill to hear how one of their favorite sandwiches peanut butter and jelly makes it from the farm to their kitchen table. After the story children will do a fun activity with Rebecca Sutton from the China Grove Farm Bureau office. Lastly, no story about sandwiches would be complete without a taste testing of local grape jelly provided by Tranquility Farm and fresh baked bread provided by the Café at Better Loafing.

Followed the next day by the annual Germanfest at the Old Stone House
Take a look back at the lives of German immigrant Michael Braun and his family, who built the Old Stone House outside Granite Quarry in 1766.
Rowan Museum’s annual Germanfest offers a trip back to those simpler times, when people worked hard but still had time for family and simple pleasures.
There will be cooking demonstrations over an open fire, live music, period dances, basket-weaving and tours of the stone house that was built before the Revolutionary War and painstakingly restored in the 1960s.
To learn more, visit 770 Old Stone House Road, Granite Quarry. Find ticket info at 704-633-5946 or www.rowanmuseum.org
