If you’re interested in taking a step back in time, visit Fulmer’s General Store in Richton. There is a wonderful little store, complete with a restaurant. You can buy fresh baked items, products from local farms and spices and other dry goods in bulk. In addition, at times, there are demonstrations of life on a homestead many years ago. We visited with my daughter’s school and had a wonderful time…here’s a taste:
Making butter…each child was able to take a turn at the churning.
Meeting the farm animals…these guys actually work the farm…and the kids loved them!
Making biscuits…the old fashioned way.
Cooking over a campfire…
Other highlights included: washing clothes by hand, riding in a horse-drawn wagon, picking pecans, and much more! Be sure to check it out, and remember that Fulmer’s host the annual Mississippi Pecan Festival each Fall. Enjoy!
