The Gardens of SENC is located at 985 Johnson Nursery Rd, Willard NC 28478.
The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina has partnered with Brie The Plant Lady for an awesome project - the cool season Grain Experience! Together, we have big plans for farm to oven experiences in Spring / Summer 2023!
The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina have planted over 5 acres of four different types of grain - wheat, barley, oats, and rye!
During a Grain To Oven Event you will harvest, thresh, winnow and grind the grain into flour. This is a great event for the whole family!
(Harvesting grains in the field is subject to grain availability)
Finally, with your freshly made flour, you will make a delicious pizza using provided toppings in our brick fired oven!
Have you ever wondered what the process is to make pizza or even flour from scratch? Nowadays it’s rare that you know where your food comes from, let alone how to make it.
We want you to experience the satisfaction of creating healthy, nutrient rich foods right from the field. And hey, you might find a new passion while you’re at it!
In a world of highly processed foods, it’s nice to enjoy a meal knowing exactly what’s in it. When you join our Grain To Oven event, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you and your family are eating quality all-natural foods!
