The Miller's Tale

The story of the Plimoth Grist Mill and our quest to mill great history and delicious organic cornmeal!

Peeps at the Mill

March 31st, 2013 by kim

A great day at the Plimoth Mill! Lots of sun, lots of cornmeal (we made about 150 pounds) and lots of very nice guests. And, some of our favorite peeps dropped by–three different kinds of peeps, in fact.

#1. Peeps That are Friends

A couple of nice young men and some friends dropped by. Thanks for visiting!

#2. Peeps that are Ducks

This nice couple has visited our lower mill race almost every day. I call them John and Sarah, for John and Sarah Jenney who started the the mill. Sarah likes to peck at things and fuss about. John likes to sleep.



#3. Peeps that are Marshmallows
Mini marshmallow millers. Adorable and delicious. They took over milling so I could have a break.
(Did you know that marshmallow peeps are made with corn? Corn syrup is one of their ingredients.)

Thanks to all our peeps for dropping by.  Come back soon!

Happy Spring from the Miller’s Tale!

      With Bertie and marshmallow peeps, it couldn’t help but be super cute! I tried to make aprons for the marshmallow millers, but they ended up looking like nurses.

    This looks so cool. When I went to visit I talk about this with one of the girls and I was so excited to finally find it. It looks incredible and absolutely adorable.You did a super great job on the model.
