Meal at the Mill will highlight the budding spring season while honoring the historic and cultural importance of grist mills in our local food systems. Guests will enjoy a flannel-formal, country-chic meal under the stars with a menu pairing by Nash’s Veggies in Lincoln, DE, Blue Water Grill in Millsboro, DE, and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, DE. The evening will also feature an exclusive showing of Patagonia’s “Unbroken Ground” short-film highlighting the regenerative agriculture movement and live music by Delaware’s own Homestead Bluegrass Band. We hope you’ll join us at our table to celebrate this gem of Sussex County.
Meal at the Mill is a celebration of Abbott’s Mill Nature Center’s service to the southern Delaware community through education, conservation, and advocacy. The rich history of Abbott’s Mill reaches back to 1795 when Mr. Nathan Willey first erected a mill on his 8-acre plot adjoining a pristine 20-acre pond. Delaware Nature Society began our work at Abbott’s in 1981. We serve as the lead advocate for the Clean Water: Delaware’s Clear Choice campaign, working to secure funding for state-wide clean water initiatives.
